As is the way of things in NYC, Snowstorm Juno didn't go as expected. While Manhattan was largely spared, there was plenty of snow in the outer boroughs to complicate subway service, and that's meant trouble for some restaurants that would otherwise be putting the fat on your ribs to deal with a bit more winter yet.
Here's what's open, what's not, and who's offering deals for those braving the cold today. For the latest updates, check the Twitter hashtag #OpenInNYC.
