The snow is in the forecast—here’s where to go if you haven’t left town yet.
$20 for two at TEN at Ten Ten Meat Market
Compose yourself with chicken, fennel, rosemary, potatoes, and vinegar on a long-stemmed stem at this rustic shack.
$27 for two at Bison + Moose Steakhouse
Our favorite meaty options: pulled-pork-and-horseradish-slathered sliders, steaks and chops, and prime rib with caramelized-potato crust.
$30 at Trummer’s on Main
Better than schnitzel, grilled tofu, or Spanish rice and beans? This arty British spot is the perfect American South gentleman’s getaway—we saw Samuel L. Jackson chowing down during a recent visit.
$35 for two at Patria
A tearoom on the streets of Little Italy isn’t the first place you’d think of for romantic dining. But try their ala carte selection—home cooked food in a bistro-style dining room.
$36 for two at The One
Bros de Taverna serves traditional Spanish tapas, with creative new additions like cow-punched olives with goat-milk cheese.
$45 at Shaq’s Chop House
Former Cavaliers All-Star Shaquille O’Neal belts out some tunes, belts out burgers, and, of course, belts out his Italian food: rack of lamb, steak, and lobsters.
$44 at Mama Miranda’s
Southern food can be hotter than a ’90s Wu-Tang Clan single—but don’t worry, this Falgout’s-backout is no Sharptooth.
PUBS AND SEAFOOD
$5 at Leonard’s
Pedal to the metal at this patio-only locale, where a one-pound King’s Hawaiian plate is a great way to get your bearings.
$7 at Mrs. Sugar’s Old-Fashioned Reel
Finish the night in a fancier establishment with dishes like smoked salmon and poached lobster.
$14 at Little Joy’s Seafood
A lobster roll and a hushpuppy with creamed corn are a proper ending to a long weekend.
$20 for two at Wine Bar LA
The city’s only vino-friendly upscale barbecue joint’s meatiest bites are butter-fried Portobello-stuffed burgers.
$35 for two at Chesapeake Grill
A steak feast: rack of lamb, grilled asparagus, jumbo shrimp, and crabcakes.
BEER AND WINE
$30 for two at Fool’s Gold
Try some serious craft brewing like Dogfish Head, Anchor Steam, and Brooklyn Brewery before you get excited about Michelob Ultra.
$33 for two at Night Court
Though “let ’em drink” is a cliche, we can’t pass up an extra-informal beer garden like this one, where the recently renovated wine bar fills the breezy weekends with live reggae, blues, and folk.
$18 for two at Aaron’s
A breezy BBQ sliders menu at this Nashville spot: pulled-pork sandwiches, hot wings, and “wok o’ sausage.”
$30 for two at Kerry James Marshall Winery
Every Sunday, a different chef brings along a big-name bottle of wine—including pop-ups from Mario Batali and David Chang. You can also hit up the winery’s tasting room and plunk down for traditional one- or two-glass options.
All data is as of Jan. 19, noon-5pm unless otherwise noted. Rates include all-inclusive food and drink.
