If you haven't already read Meik Wiking's best-seller, 'The Little Book of Hygge', Hygge (pronounced hue-guh not hoo-gah) is a Danish word used when acknowledging a feeling or moment, whether alone or with friends, at home or out, ordinary or extraordinary as cozy, charming or special. And if you're looking for the perfect cozy spot outside of home — be it a bar, a restaurant, or a pub — Food and Wine made a list of what they believe are the best across the country.

So next time you're on the road and it's raining heavily outside, you can pull up to one of these for some much-needed comfort food. Our favorites? The deliciously succulent cedar-plank wild salmon at Idaho's Trail Creek Cabin, and the incredible bread putting at Iowa's Flatted Fifth Blues & BBQ in Bellvue, which is enough to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Read on for the full list.
