40 Detroit area restaurants with igloos, tents, and heated outdoor seating


We Michiganders know one thing to be true: winter is inevitable. No longer how many unseasonably warm days November may hold, winter is on its way, which, during a global pandemic, will make quarantining all the more difficult. But fear not, brave people who wish to dine in public, as there are some creative solutions to socially distant dining in metro Detroit. While many restaurants will winterize existing patios and rooftops to better accommodate guests this winter, others are taking it a step further by offering private igloos, tents, and in some cases, yurts. (Just beware of a false sense of security.)
