Cozy Restaurants to Visit this Winter

Winter cometh, which inevitably means more time inside. These three new restaurants and their stunning interiors does a happy indoors-person make!


Tradd’s, Charleston | Marrying traditional details with modern elements, Brooklyn-based design studio, Workstead crafted an interior that is both old school and modern. Elements of this early 1800’s building were left exposed and a graceful, fresh color palette of greens, creams and warm grays works seamlessly with classic fixtures and finishes. At the helm of Tradd’s kitchen is chef Drew Hedlund, who serves up a seasonal menu of dishes rooted in the familiar with a refined, unexpected twist.


Simone & Duello, LA | Interior designer Deirdre Doherty capitalized on the previous life of this 1909 historic building – a former photography studio – with a restaurant and bar that is elevated, curious and has vibes of “industrial deco.” Warm and moody leathers, velvets and tweeds meet bespoke elements like hand-made brass chandeliers, stained glass, and rich, hand-painted wall coverings. Simone is a project by director Joe Russo with James Beard Award-winning head chef, Jessica Largey offering produce-driven SoCal fare with a thoughtful technique in a relaxed, approachable style.


Bluebird London, New York City | The first US outpost for Bluebird London welcomes patrons with a luminous, sprightly interior “celebrating the irreverent spirit and effortless style” of 1960’s Britain. Architecture and interior design firm, CetraRuddy balanced a vibrant mix of color and pattern – purples, greens, yellows, ikats, geometrics, ditsy prints – with sweeping views of Central Park. Overseen by chef Nicolas Houlbert, the menu dovetails local produce and contemporary ingredients with beloved British dishes.
