Eleven Cozy Bay Area Spots for a Warm, Wintry Meal


The season definitely took a shift this week, and the next few days you should expect to be a little damp. Given that, we have a few suggestions of where to dine by a fire, or at least ensconced in a cozy dining room with some rib-sticking, soul-warming food this winter. We’re not talking tried-and-true comfort food necessarily, but from our list it does seem the Europeans have a hold on hearty cuisine that will get you through the coldest, bleakest days, though ramen is a fine bet too. And by the way, booze also does the trick, and the fireplace lounge at Big Four or the Hideout at Dalva are also good bets for hiding out with a cocktail in the cold and rain.
