For Angelenos ready to enjoy the comforts of hospitality, restaurants across the Southland built brand new patios using available space or activating existing outdoor dining rooms to safely serve patrons. And as certain as the Santa Ana winds, Angeleno diners are going to want to stay warm on those outdoor patios. In fact, it’s almost unheard of to see an outdoor patio without relatively ample heating. Here now are 15 lovely heated outdoor dining patios in Los Angeles.

Removed: Little Coyote, Pedaler’s Fork, San Antonio Winery, Nativo, Ballast Point, Dulan’s

Added: Culina, Agnes, Terra, Terrace at Maybourne, Bacari Silver Lake, Nueva
