This long-time lauded restaurant in Nolita has a hidden back garden that draws guests through all seasons. The back patio area is now outfitted with individual greenhouses for the colder months, and out front, The Musket Room has transformed its streetside seating into an alpine wonderland with electric fireplaces, blankets, twinkling lights, and cozy furniture. The globally inspired restaurant is also offering food and drink specials in the space like a hot toddy riff called “Todd is a Hottie” and spiked hot chocolate with fresh whipped cream along with the standard menu.

For the first time ever, the Michelin-starred restaurant is hosting a winter-themed pop-up. It’s transforming its front outdoor dining area into The Lodge, with three nooks seating four to eight people in each.

While there, munch on addictive caramel-butter-cheddar popcorn in a custom-branded container; whole nuts you can crack with a nutcracker; deviled eggs with caviar; a mushroom pot pie with a black truffle add-on, and some of the best sticky toffee pudding this side of the Atlantic. Sip on holiday cocktails like Todd is a Hottie (a hot toddy riff served in a thermos), a hot spiked cider, and a blackstrap spruce Old Fashioned.
