Have Dinner With an Old Flame

Splashy décor is nice, but a restaurant with a working fireplace is hard to beat.

  1. 1. The Waverly Inn

    16 Bank St., at Wavery Pl.; no (useful) phone

    Graydon Carter’s snug little boîte may not be officially “open,” but that doesn’t mean persistent scenesters can’t have a nice fireside dinner there and pay for the privilege.

  2. 2. Per Se

    10 Columbus Cir., at 60th St.; 212-823-9335

    When Gordon Ramsay recently called Per Se “clinical,” Thomas Keller tut-tutted, “We have a natural-wood fireplace, wood and leather.”

  3. 3. Molly’s Shebeen

    287 Third Ave., nr. 22nd St.; 212-889-3361

    A fine Irish pub with a toothsome burger and a cozy hearth.

  4. 4. Savoy

    70 Prince St., at Crosby St.; 212-219-8570

    On occasion, they even cook dinner in the restaurant’s upstairs fireplace.

  5. 5. Keens Steakhouse

    72 W. 36th St., nr. Sixth Ave.; 212-947-3636

    They don’t roast the mutton over the pub-room fire, but don’t let that stop you from paying a visit.
