Next time you’re going out for dinner or a drink in
the Roosevelt Island area, consider paying a visit to one of these restaurants
that celebrate love for the holiday season with their festive décor! Not only
will you enjoy their delicious food, but you can also marvel at the beautiful
decorations put up on display for this special time of year. Check out the
restaurants that put their best on display near the Octagon.
Rolf’s –Perhaps the most well known restaurant to put up a dazzling Christmas display is Rolf’s. With lights and wreaths adorning the ceilings, and ornaments and pointsettas lining each wall, its safe to say this restaurant attracts a tourist crowd; nonetheless it is definitely worth seeing! Although it may be hard to get a dinner reservation from now until the holidays, don’t worry; you can always stop in for a drink at the bar, or make reservations after the holidays. The Christmas display will be up until mid-May!
The Lodge at Gallow Green – You may have paid a visit to Gallow Green as a summer rooftop destination, but have you been back to checkout the winter scene? The rooftop bar atop the MicKittrick Hotel transforms itself into a cozy rooftop destination. The bar and restaurant space is decorated as a wood cabin with comfort food and accompanying drinks. Cozy up with plaid flannel blankets and sip hot cocktails like the delicious Sleep No More (apple cider, jack Daniels, rye, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clover).
Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden – Head across the river to Astoria’s Bohemian Hall and Beer, a German-leaning beer garden that’s fully decorated for the Christmas holiday. Grab a brew and some German fare and enjoy the holiday sights of decorated Christmas trees, illuminated reindeer and a beautiful light display.
