The portions were generous and everyone took something home. Despite being full, we managed to share tiramisu and carrot cake. The service and atmosphere at Patsy's is something we... More

We had such a great time at the restaurant. Sal personally checks on each table told us a story or two and made us feel right at home. If it's good enough for Sinatra and countless celebs it's good enough for us. All jokes aside the food was perfect and I am a foodie. Go and enjoy old school Italian... More

If it was good enough for Frank Sinatra (and it was -- repeatedly), then it's good enough for me. Frank and his boys loved the veal parmesan and other southern Italian delights offered in this throwback to yesteryear ... and so will you. Ask for a table upstairs in what could be grandma's upscale, vintage dining room.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
