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. 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. Molly’s Shebeen
287 Third Ave., nr. 22nd St.; 212-889-3361
A fine Irish pub with a toothsome burger and a cozy hearth.
70 Prince St., at Crosby St.; 212-219-8570
On occasion, they even cook dinner in the restaurant’s upstairs fireplace.
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.
