Picture This: Restaurant on the River

Downtown Pittston Partnership Hosted an Evening of Fine Dining on the Bridge

The Firefighter’s Memorial Bridge on Water Street has always been a Pittston landmark, but on Friday night, it turned into a fine dining destination. On July 15, the Downtown Pittston Partnership hosted the first-ever Restaurant on the River. The evening included an al fresco dinner, an open bar and live entertainment on the historic bridge.

The night began with cocktail hour. Then, Grico’s of Exeter and Rikasa of Pittston served an elegant four-course meal. Live music and dancing rounded out the night, just in time for sunset. The event was an excellent way to celebrate downtown Pittston and feature restaurants from both sides of the bridge.

Tickets for Restaurant on the River sold out within just a few days of the announcement. About 200 guests attended the event.

We couldn’t miss this one-of-a-kind event. Check out our photos for the highlights of the evening.
