Frozen dinners were on the menu Wednesday night for hungry New Yorkers who refused to let Winter Storm Gail ruin their appetites.

Diners donned their warmest parkas to grab a bite outside at Fanelli’s Cafe in SoHo just as the first flakes fell in the Big Apple.

The eatery kept its red-and-white checkered tableclothed tables — and heat lamps — lined along the sidewalk for patrons to enjoy a smoke and a nightcap.

Down the block, a few famished others warmed up outdoors with a slice from Prince Street Pizza as the snow bore down.

The city’s Department of Sanitation put the kibosh on roadway dining due to the massive snowstorm — which dumped more than 6 inches in Central Park — but sidewalk dining was still permitted.
