Park Avenue's Franchia has come up with a unique way to keep its outdoor diners toasty during the winter months. Forget those massive gas-driven heaters, at Frenchia's the heat is in the seat. Diners can actually regulate the heat from a cord attached to each seat until their buns reach the perfect comfort level.
