Winter dining across East Harlem is starting to look magical!

A tip sheet of special spots:

Taco Mix — The festive lights make this late-night taco spot look like a cold-weather wonderland. Plus, they’ve even moved the pastor outside, to slice directly near your table.

Quesadillas Dona Maty — Located a few doors down from Taco Mix, the outdoor structure at Quesadillas Dona Maty was built by the owners, by hand. (Insider tip: They recently opened a second location on Second Avenue and 110th Street.)

La Chula — Your own little cabin. Right in the heart of 116th Street.

Mountain Bird or Malii Thai — Greenhouses! Step inside with your own individual party. And you’ll stay plenty warm.

El Paso at 97th Street — Outdoor dining, divided into three separate heated dining rooms.

East Harlem Bottling Co. — They’ve got blankets for you to borrow! Plus some pretty powerful outdoor heaters. So plan to get snuggly.

La Fonda Boricua — Outdoor heaters to keep you warm. Plus ask them for their board games!

The Rochard — Heat lamps and plenty of craft beer.

Amor Cubano — Stained interiors have it feeling homey. Order the Cuban sandwich recommended by the New York Times.

Maxwell’s Central Park — Open-air dining with a Northern Lights glow. Squint a little and you’ll think you’re near the North Pole.

Au Jus Oklahoma BBQ — If you like airflow, Au Jus is the place for you! They’ve got outdoor heaters and plenty of room to breathe. Plus try the mac and cheese.

Cassava House: Bundle up! There’s plenty of fresh air out on the back patio.
