Despite what the few days of global warming weather (or a groundhog) would have you believe, NYC is still firmly in the grip of winter, which means that we have plenty of chilly nights ahead of us to spend carbo-loading and wine-drinking in chunky sweaters. 

The best spot to survive the rest of the season? The West Village's favorite new neighborhood eatery, Anton's. From its rustic interiors to its hearty selection of old-world American and European dishes, including plates piled high with pasta, the self-proclaimed "nostalgic New York café and wine bar" from Chef Nick Anderer is practically made to cozy up in.

Since opening back in November (in the former Frankies 570 Spuntino space), Anton's has quickly become a go-to for stylish locals and A-listers looking to wind down and catch up over some wine and filling fare. Ina Garten, for one, recently celebrated her birthday here, and really, that's as much of a stamp of approval anyone should need.

If you need some more convincing, however, click through for a look at a few of the dishes that await.
