Outdoor dining is something that is coveted here in Astoria, and even during the colder months you don’t have to miss out on it.

These restaurants all have enclosed and/or heated outdoor spaces of some sort — whether in backyard patios or around street-side bars — so you don’t have to sacrifice daylight views during the dark winter months.
