Where to Celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Westchester

Share

Raise a cerveza, enjoy some mariachi, dig into some delectable dishes, and celebrate Mexican heritage in Westchester County with these Cinco de Mayo plans.

For the holiday that commemorates the Mexican army’s victory over France in 1862, we thought we’d suggest a couple of spots in Westchester where you can mount your own triumph.

Blue Moon Mexican Café

Grab your friends and have a fiesta for Cinco de Mayo weekend at Blue Moon Mexican Café. The celebration begins at 3 p.m. on Wednesday with Fiesta Hour until 7 p.m. and indoor and outdoor dining is available. There will be live music performed by a mariachi band, giveaways, and drinks specials. Enjoy guacamole, tacos, and more delicious Mexican food.

The Greekish

This Greek restaurant in Harrison specializes in Greek cuisine, but that won’t stop it from joining in on the festivities. Enjoy 2-for-1 Mythos and $8 Ouzo Margaritas with a variety of Meze options.

Mariachi Mexico

Forget the mariachi band: You’ll hear sweet music in the fare at Armonk’s Mariachi Mexico, which will open from noon until 9 p.m. on Sunday. Patio seating will be first come, first served, but no matter where you sit you can enjoy $8 frozen margaritas, $5 imported beers, and a limited-time chef’s menu featuring chicken chipotle and carnitas tacos, enchiladas mole, bistec burritos, nopal (cactus), and a few market specials, plus plenty of guac with either chips or farm-fresh veggies.

Tequila lovers, look no further than Sonora in Port Chester for your 5/5 festivities. Boasting the largest selection of tequila in the county, including a variety of 141, Sonora makes visitors feel like kids in a “candy” store. In addition, this county mainstay will be offering $5 margs and $5 guac at the bar and lounge.

Vega Mexican Cuisine

This contemporary Mexican joint in Hartsdale will offer various drink specials, including $5 shots of Herradura and Cazadores and $8 house margaritas and sangrias. Reservations are encouraged.
