With this cold in our bones, many of us are craving nothing more than relaxing in front of a nice, warm fireplace.

And of course, we like to eat.

So here are some toasty restaurants within the Greater Patchogue coverage area that will supply the fire. What’s more, all these menus include delicious comfort food because, let’s face it, no one gets the warm and fuzzies from a salad.

Avino’s Italian Table

108 South Country Road, Bellport | 631-803-6416

Avino’s offers old-world dishes from Northern and Southern Italy, as well as three fireplaces — one in each dining room! — for an uber romantic night in the heart of beautiful Bellport Village.
