Four Eleven York 

Nestled in the Freemason District, Four Eleven York (pictured above) offers a modern yet rustic, homey atmosphere. Pair a cozy dining experience with specialty cocktails and delicious food where you’ll find the perfect evening spot on their patio which is lined with firepits.

If you’re looking for a new and unique dining spot look no further than Streats. Inspired by international street foods, this funky restaurant offers a full-service patio with heaters when the weather is nice. 


Nestle under the heaters at this family-owned and operated Greek restaurant that has been serving locals since 1966. With a wide selection of beer and wine along with a menu full of mouth-watering and filling entrees, there’s something for everyone at this local favorite. 

A.W Shucks Raw Bar and Grill

Leone’s Italian

The Coach House

With heaters in both their enclosed patio and tent, there is more than enough space to enjoy their American cuisine. Dive into their Duck BBQ sandwich, a unique spin on a beloved sandwich featuring pulled duck covered in their house sriracha BBQ sauce, paired with fried pickles on a sesame seed bun.
