4th of July Restaurants (westchester, putnam, orange counties)

Maybe this is something that just doesnt exist since my search turned up empty but is there any restaurants that you can eat with a fireworks view? where are the places to be on july 4th?

      whats the parking sitiuation at Johnnies?

      1. re: ryanallday

        Johnnies has a parking lot, Tiki Bar you park in Rye Playland. You have to get there very early because traffic in and out of Rye is crazy.

    2. Yonkers and Peekskill usually put on fireworks shows. You might want to look into restaurants along the Hudson River with outdoor seating/ water views. If you can't find anything Tuckahoe is having their annual (Grucci) fireworks show on Saturday the 7th. I'm not sure who the food vendors will be this year but in previous years several of the local restaurants have set up in addition to the zeppole and burger stands.

        To the best of my knowledge Yonkers is not having fireworks this year due to budget considerations. New Rochelle has fireworks but I am not sure if there are any restaurants with views there. Maybe Mamaroneck? the ones at Kensico Dam were last night.
