I have heard that tony’s is a great spot to view the parade, so I booked a 2:30 res in hopes of being able to watch the parade from here, which starts at 3. we are going on a crowd level 5 day. any experiences?
Like any “view” restaurant, outside availability is a toss up. Arrive 20 minutes early, and ask.
If the parade starts at 3:00pm, it should make its way to you by 3:20 - 3:30. I would say that you will be able to see the mid-to-top part of the floats, but will struggle seeing anything happening on the ground.
