Village within the Bronx

Great atmosphere, feel like your in a small New England village, but your within sight of NYC. Combine with a hike in Pelham Bay Park

If you love authentic spanish dishes/seafood and entertainment, then definitely visit this restaurant. I was treated to a great game of musical chairs for my birthday while at this location. In addition to the good food and music, my experience was truly memorable

I enjoy city island and whenever out of town visitors come, it is a must see location. City Island has upscale napkin restaurants and casual fun restaurants. Great for dates and family dining out experience. Parking no problem because most restaurants have their private parking lots.
