Dinner July 4th...

Any recs for dinner July 4? My plan was to eat dinner with my lady and then walk down to the water to see the fireworks on the Hudson.

I hoped to go to Balaboosta to give you an idea of my neighborhood/price range. I am flexible on cuisine and neighborhood (though nothing above 14th St. please).

  1. I realized I neglected to mention Balaboosta is closed that night; otherwise I would just go there...

    1. How about Recette? OpenTable shows they are open on the 4th, and tables for two are available at all times between 5:30 and 7:45.

      1. Where exactly do you plan to view the fireworks? You requested nothing above 14th St but I thought the barges started around 23rd. Are they actually visible from near the Meatpacking District/West Village?

          We like to go to Hudson Park down by Christopher St and below. It isn't too crowded, and you can get a great view.

        2. We ended up reserving at The Harrison. We also considered Plein Sud and Scarpina.
