No visit to New York city is complete without a dinner at Patsy's Restaurant. I was lucky to eat there many times with my late parents in the 70's, 80's and 90's as this was their favorite restaurant of any type in New York City. My Dad's picture is still up on their wall and this means a great deal to me and my family. I had not been to New York in over 15 years and I am happy to report that Patsy's is as good as I remember it, maybe even better! This place is about great authentic Italian food coupled with 5 star service. It is family owned and operated and that is what makes it so special. We were there on a Friday night and of course the restaurant was packed. The 4 of us each had different appetizers and entrees. We also had a wonderful very old bottle of Gold Label Ruffino Chianti Classico from the early 1960's!! My husband and I love good red wine and they have some wonderful wines in their cellar! From the caesar salad to the shrimp scampi, lasagna, spaghetti and meatballs, steak marsala, and the veal which we had in various preparations to the desserts, all were excellent. In fact it was so good that we asked if we could return again the next evening! I am sure they are always fully booked on a Saturday and we were very happy that they were able to accommodate us. Our meal the 2nd night was just as good as the first! Our Thanks to Sal, Frank and everyone at Patsy's for 2 wonderful evenings as well as for all the nice things they said about my late father. This was the 1st trip to NY for our 2 youngest sons and it made quite an impression. It is very different from where we live in Los Angeles! Our middle son, Graham was accepted at St John's University and has decided to turn down the University of Hawaii and attend St John's this fall! I have to believe our experience at Patsy's played a role in his decision!! We are looking forward to another incredible meal or two when we return to bring him to college in late August.
