5 Upstate Restaurants Offering Igloo Dining This Winter

From Saratoga to Bolton Landing, eating (and drinking!) in a heated igloo is all the rage.

The Inn at Erlowest is just one local hotspot offering igloo dining this winter.

The chicest restaurant trend to come out of COVID? Outdoor igloos, which give customers the triple benefit of dining al fresco (views for days!), staying warm and social distancing. While The Adelphi Hotel, which ushered in the trend to Saratoga, won’t be offering seatings in its popular snowy-season igloos this winter due to construction, there are still plenty of places to cozy up for a bite in a crystal clear dome. Here are five:
