The views are spectacular at Bayview Restaurant & Catering Hall, located at 25 Van Brunt Road in Broad Channel. Rockaway residents need only take the first right turn after going through the Cross Bay Bridge toll, into their parking lot. Bayview also hosts a "booze cruise" party boat in the summers. The fun keeps going in fall and winter, with the Halloween and New Year's Eve parties, live entertainment during dinner on Fridays and Saturdays from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., and appearances by popular Psychic/Medium Kim. Open year-round for fine dining and a full range of bar drinks, Bayview features a large convertible glass-enclosed deck in the winter, which becomes a fabulous openair venue in warmer weather. Private events can be booked between Labor Day and Memorial Day. Great parties are a tradition at Bayview, from the always-popular, annual end-of-the-school-year celebration for teachers in late June, to the Fourth of July event, and the Broad Channel Mardi Gras festival at the end of the summer. Bayview is open Thursday through Sunday during the winter, with an $18.95 threecourse pre-fixe dinner available. Extended summer hours will begin in May. Call Bayview at 718-634-4555 for more information on upcoming events, or visit their website at www.bcbayview.com.
