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.
[Apologies about the cross posting, I also posted this on the NY state board- wasn't sure of the etiquette on that].
Your post caught my attention because MV is my home town (haven't lived there in over 40 years) and because I believe the location of your folks is the former site of the synagogue of my bar mitzvah (47 years ago). Just moved my 90 y.o. dad out of his MV home this year. Rough story about your folks & Sandy. Sorry for their troubles. I regret that I can't help with any suggestions but I hope you get some good help here (probably on the NYS board). Good luck.
