Getting insect bites while dining indoors?

I was having dinner at a restaurant in NYC on Sat night. It was really warm so I a wore a dress with open toe sandals. Halfway through dinner my left lower leg/ankle area suddenly got really itchy. I went to the restroom to check, sure ehough there were 3 small bites on my ankle and lower calf.

I was sitting inside near the window - the table was next to the service station and another empty table. None of the other diners at my table were bitten but they were all wearing long trousers.

I didn't think a mosquito could get through double glass doors unless the timing was really lucky. Just a little worried since this has never happened to me before and I don't know what type of insect caused the bites. There were no service animals in the restaurant. Is this usual during warm weather, even when dining indoors/has this happened to people before? Would a restaurant want to be informed if their customers are getting bitten during service s they can call in someone to spray the area?
