4 Hamptons Restaurants with Heat Lamps & Outdoor Dining This Winter

Rachel Feinblatt | February 5, 2021 | Food & Drink


As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to rage, we're stuck in this weird limbo where we want to go out to eat but can't face the snow.

Outdoor dining is necessary, but in winter, it's simply unbearable without portable heaters, plush blankets and shearling wraps. Thankfully, some of our favorite Hamptons restaurants are decked out with ways to keep you warm, happy and fed.

Here are our favorite outdoor dining options out East to keep you nice and toasty.

Dopo Argento

15 Main St., Southampton / Website

Not only is Dopo Argento’s Italian game strong, its outdoor seating is off the charts! Fuzzy blankets will help you stay warmer than your ravioli cacio e pepe. This spot brings serious Aspen, too, and you might just leave ready to hit the slopes. Dopo Argento gives a whole new meaning to a warm welcome, so make sure you stop by and support the local business.

Tutto il Giorno

16 Main St., Sag Harbor / Website

Tutto il Giorno? More like Tutto il warmo! Southampton and Sag Harbor are home to this Italian hotspot known for authentic Italian cuisine and a comfortable outdoor seating area. Enjoy fan-favorite dishes, including the beloved Rigatoni or Linguini pastas, all under the warmth of a heater. Stay safe, socially distanced and stuffed at either of Tutto il Giorno’s locations.

1970 Montauk Hwy., Bridgehampton / Website

Last summer’s greatest addition to the Hamptons, Armin and Judy's outdoor seating is as tasteful as its Cacio e Pepe - and that says a lot. Stop by this Bridgehampton gem for fresh spaghetti, pizza, bread and more. The menu is all Italian, serving folks Thursday through Monday. If this isn’t the fluffiest and flavorful pizza you have ever had, you are lying to yourself.

Tasting Room at Macari Vineyards

150 Bergen Ave., Mattituck / Website

Macari Vineyards takes drinking safely and responsibly to a whole new level. Its wine tasting rooms are adorable, safe and perfect for a couples night out (which we're sure you desperately deserve). These Bergen Road bungalows are nothing short of warm and Insta-worthy. You will seriously feel the comfort of your own living room, if not comfier, with the style and flair of these tents. Toast to an awesome winter outdoor dining spot before the snow melts.
