LGBTQ restaurant opens in White Plains

Westchester's first full-service gay restaurant opened in White Plains on Sunday.



Rhoda Rolling Stone and Dotty Spartans were among the performers during a drag queen brunch at the venue called Ignite.



For $35, patrons got unlimited drinks, a meal and a seat at the show.



Ignite co-owner Kevin Burke said he had first-day jitters.



"I'm nervous, excited, elated, terrified," Burke said.



Customers said they were glad the Westchester LGBTQ community has a new place to call home.
