2005_12_food_FireplaceWithFire.jpgNew York Metro rounds up some restaurants where you can warm up in front of the fire when it gets cold and snowy outside, including Per Se (if you can snag a reservation), and Savoy (the cheeseburgers there are divine, by the way). We'd like to add a few to the mix, including the delightful and cozy Applewood in Park Slope (get the butter-poached lobster), the back room in the Art Bar (for drinks), and the quaint Jack's Luxury Oyster Bar (although we haven't been there since Maxime Bilet took over the helm from Allison Vines-Rushing). Other fireplace suggestions?
