The cold weather doesn’t stop this new American eatery from opening its cozy garden-like patio. Several heaters are scattered around the tables to heat up diners as they chow down on favorites that include French onion soup, crab cakes, lobster over homemade spinach ravioli and marinated skirt steak. But the indoor area of this 1850s building is just as appealing.
