Patsy’s of New York Italian Restaurant, known as Frank Sinatra’s favorite restaurant, will pay tribute to the legacy of Frank Sinatra, 20 years after he passed away on May 14th, 1998. The legendary New York City Italian restaurant will host the special event on Saturday, May 19th from 12:30pm to 3:30pm to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Frank Sinatra’s death.
The celebration will be headlined by four-time Emmy Award winning television host, Bill Boggs. Known for interviewing some of the greatest names in the music industry, Boggs was the first talk show host whom Frank Sinatra trusted enough to allow him to interview him on camera.
“I am honored to be part of the legacy of the greatest performer of the 20th century. It may be 20 years since his passing but he is more relevant now than ever before. His talents will continue to influence generations of musicians for a long time. He was always ahead of his time including his beliefs on equality and inclusion,” stated Sal Scognamillo, owner of Patsy’s of New York Italian Restaurant.
Festivities include a four course meal featuring dishes Frank Sinatra always ordered from his favorite restaurant, great stories from those who knew him well and memorable video clips. ‘Sinatra: The Song Is You,’ and music and pop culture writer for the Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair and Playboy writer Will Friedwald, will be signing copies of his rereleased book which features a new forward penned by Tony Bennett.
