Patsy’s Italian Restaurant Food Glorious Food

Patsy’s Italian Restaurant Food Glorious Food
Nestled into the heart of the theater district, you will find Patsy’s Italian Restaurant at 236 W 56th Street. Here old would charm radiates as you are served by waiters in white jackets trimmed with gold braid, who hold out your chair for you. The room is elegant and comfortable all in the same breath. Personal satisfaction is guaranteed as Sal, Patsy’s grandson and the current chef, personally introduces himself to each table. Patsy’s Italian Restaurant has been a traditional, family-owned and operated Italian restaurant since 1944, hosting such regulars as Frank Sinatra, Placido Domingo, Alec Baldwin, Tom Hanks, Madonna, George Clooney, Oprah Winfrey, Tony Bennett, Robert DeNiro, Liza Minnelli, and so many others. When you dine here you will understand why.

The menu is a collection of nostalgic old-Italian favorites done to perfection. There are prix-fixe menu’s (Lunch $39, dinner $65) and ala carte menu which offer signature dishes, such as Veal Chops Siciliano, spicy Lobster Fra Diavolo, tender Chicken Contadina, calamari stuffed with seafood and Shrimp Scampi. Dishes are cooked to order, so if you are gluten free or have allergies your needs are taken care of.

Bucatini all’Amatriciana

My guest the producer Pat Addiss and I decided to share dishes, so all the pictures you will see are half portions. We started off with pasta and I choose Bucatini all’Amatriciana ($27) A classic red sauce with hickory-smoked bacon, prosciutto, onions, and fresh basil. The pasta was fresh and the sauce savory and excellent and was the perfect starter.

 Eggplant Parmigiana

Next up was Eggplant Parmigiana ($25) Eggplant baked with Parmigiano-Reggiano, mozzarella, and tomato basil sauce. Now this dish is one of Pat’s and my favorites and this version was so delicate it almost tasted like a soufflé. Total perfection.

 Veal Francese

Veal Francese

The Veal Francese ($35) Egg-battered and sautéed with prosciutto, butter, lemon, and white wine, is mind blowing. The sauce is so savory and perfectly light that it is addicting. Served with a potato croquet and fresh green beans this was our favorite dish and will have us coming back.

Desert Tray

The desert tray ($13) was totally tempting and if you love desert you can not pass this up. We ordered the Canolli Cake and the Napoleon, along with a cappuccino.

These desserts are better than Veniero’s in the village and if you know this establishment you know this is saying a lot. The creme in the Napoleon was so soft, delicate and delectable and the pastry flaky and buttery. The Canolli Cake is just like the pastry only lighter. The portions are generous and definitely shareable,
