Today’s blizzard turned out to be … not so historic. So after figuring out what to do with those 16 cases of water and survival packs of food you bought last night, you may be more inclined to brave the wintry mix that’s blanketing the city. That said, the weather’s still not great, and many New York restaurants closed either preemptively or because the city shut down aboveground subways (not to mention the Metro-North). Maybe you got the day off and want to take advantage of it by visiting that noodle place you keep hearing about. But you don’t want to walk through ten blocks of slush and icy winds just to find out your favorite burger spot is closed. With that in mind, here’s a list of restaurants that are open today and definitely worth slogging through the storm for.
