As the warm weather fades (It’s supposed to drop into the 40s this week. The 40s!), we tend to scurry inside, but especially in a temperate city like ours, this need not be the case. A few space heaters, some booze, and you can enjoy outdoor dining all winter long. We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite al fresco spots as worth hitting up in November as in July, when the weather really gets chilly.
