New Yorkers seek comfort food on a cold day

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

A frigid night like this calls for some seriously warming food and I'm starting with French onion soup at Luke's Bar and Grill. Bring on the cheese and the burgers and the pot roast with mashed potatoes. A bone chilling night calls for some rib-sticking eats.

While the polar vortex kept many New Yorkers at home, those who did venture out to Luke's on the Upper East Side ate accordingly: meatloaf, chicken pot pie, pot roast, burger, baked potato -- all comfort food.

Ice coated the windows at restaurants across the city as frozen New Yorkers sought refuge inside with steaming bowls of soup and stacks of pancakes.

No surprise that hot chocolate, the wintertime staple at Francois Payard Patisserie on the Upper East Side, was a best seller on Tuesday. On a day like today even a steamy hot chocolate is best enjoyed inside.
