Sinatra loved this pizza and so do I. That is saying a lot for a Chicago boy. We came here after an afternoon Yankee game for dinner. It was a bit of a hike from the 125th st. subway station. There were moments walking through Harlem when we thought this place had folded because it was difficult to find on-line. There are several Patsy's in the city and could not find a link to this address. Finally when we turned the corner on 1st Ave. there was Patsy's glorious sign! I don't know about the other locations but this is the original. They still have the same coal fired oven they used in 1933 when they opened. These coal ovens are banned in the city but Patsy's is grandfathered in. The place is small but was only half full on Labor Day night. The interior is simple with tile floor, wood chairs and tables and pictures of famous New Yorkers, newspaper articles and official congressional documents claiming how awesome this place is. The waitresses were friendly but seemed to be in not too big of a hurry or that attentive for the place only being half full. We had muscles as an appetizer that were delicious. The pizza when it came out was amazing. A more of a traditional thin crust with a fantastic sauce and ingredients that were so fresh. I will have to try more pizza places in New York to compare but from all the Chicago pizza I have had, this ranked near the top.
