Thanksgiving near Mt. Vernon
We are looking for a restaurant where we can take my elderly (90's) parents for Thanksgiving dinner, within a reasonable (?) distance of where their assisted living residence is- N. Columbus Ave in Mt. Vernon. Their normal residence is in south Brooklyn, but they were flooded out by Sandy and evacuated to the Mt. Vernon location. We would like to spend the holiday with them, but it is too far to drive them to where we live, so we would like to find a nice restaurant where we can all have a traditional turkey dinner. Doesn't need to be fancy or elaborate, just looking for something "nice": clean, attractive, with good food and service. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated- my dad was evacuated on his 93rd birthday. Yonkers, Scarsdale, Bronx, etc. are all possible; anything within 15 to 20 minutes driving. Less is better.
I looked on Open Table and Tombolino's is serving Thanksgiving Dinner. So is Dolphin Restaurant, also in Yonkers. Both, I think, are really nice and the latter is on the Yonker's waterfront, so it's pretty. I'm sorry your parents are going through so much! I hope they have a wonderful holiday.
My sister had Thanksgiving dinner at Tombolino in Yonkers with her family albeit it several years ago. Everyone enjoyed the experience and the food. It is a short and easy ride from Mt Vernon.
Glad your folks are okay and I hope they are back home soon!
