On this week's Ask the Critic, Carey offered up some cozy restaurants to fight off the cold. For starters? Good pubs.

I've spent a good deal of time in the UK and in Ireland, and I have to say: they have the cozy (cosy?) pub thing down. In fact, I never much minded a dreary day over there because every one was a great excuse to hunker down with a pint.

See all her picks here.
