PATSY'S ITALIAN RESTAURANT - NEW YORK CITY
PATSY'S ITALIAN RESTAURANT
NEW YORK, NY
Decided to have a light lunch at Patsy's. This famous restaurant was the favorite of Frank Sinatra and many other Hollywood Stars. The Soprano's ate here regularly during their show and J. Lo takes the pasta on her private jet. The staff is Italian, bold but gracious in every way. We started with the Calamari. A huge plate of breaded and fried calamari served with Marinara Sauce. I did not care for the breading as it was too thick. The sauce saved the dish. We tried Cannelloni with Chicken, Veal and Spinach served with a meat sauce. It was very good. Also tried the Fussili with ricotta and meat sauce. The pasta was excellent and cooked perfectly. The sauce while a bit creamy was light and delicious. Keli tried the Tortallini with Meat Sauce. This was a huge plate of meat filled pasta covered in Marinara sauce with mushrooms. Probably the best dish out of the three. After a glass of Chianti, it was time for a nap.
