The Wetanson Family Does It Again With Great Food at Patrick’s Restaurant and Oyster Bar

Located at 259 West 42nd Street, Patrick’s Restaurant and Oyster Bar has opened its doors to the community. Formally Chevy’s Tex Mex, Patrick’s is being brought to you by the family owned business that has brought you Dallas BBQ and Tony DiNapoli’s.

This new restaurant is spacious and laid out to make you feel comfortable. with 2 bars, a fireplace, and lots of comfy booths. Patrick’s isn’t just for the seafood lover with a first-class raw bar, but also the vegetarian and the meat eater with prime steaks and super-serious burgers. It’s also the place to come to before and after the theatre as service is top rate and there are some terrific desert and coffee drinks.

My guest and I started out with Buffalo Wings ($14), Mac and Cheese ($10), Zucchini Chips ($10) and a combo of Oysters East Coast ($2.50 a piece) and West Coast ($3.50 a piece), Wild Little Necks ($2.00 a piece) and Main Jonah Crab ($3.00 a piece). The portions are all plentiful and needless to say I came away with a large shopping bag, that made me seriously happy for several days.

The Buffalo Wings come with a fresh crumbled blue cheese dipping, celery, with adorable yellow and orange baby carrots. The wings are succulent but on the hot side, so beware.

The Mac and Cheese was so fabulously creamy with a light crust to make it comforting.

I absolutely will come back for the Zucchini Chips, which are cut like thin potato chips and are lightly coated. Topped with a sprinkling of parmesan cheese these tasty little morsels alone would make a fabulous meal.

As for the seafood, my guest was in total delight, claiming it was the freshest seafood she has had in a long while. This was a lot coming from her, as she eats out in some of the best restaurant in New York.

For our main dishes my guest had the Lobster Roll ($25), which she throughly enjoyed. The lobster was plentiful and succulent.

Not being a seafood lover, I went for the Patrick’ Rib Eye ($28) 14 oz of perfectly cooked steak that melted in your mouth. The sauce tasted just like Peter Luger’s.

Recommended to us was a side of Sautéed Brussel Sprouts ($8), which is the main reason I would come back. These tasty little morsels were seasoned so wonderfully that I would make a meal out of them.

Stuffed from round one, we decided to come back after our show to try out the desserts and we were not disappointed. We went for the Irish Car Bomb with molten lava cake, Bailys ice cream and a Guinness caramel cream sauce and The Pecan Pie Sundae, has a pecan pie, butter pecan ice drizzled in a Jamison caramel cream sauce. Also available is a Classic New York Cheese Cake with strawberries. All the deserts are $10 and are easily shareable though you may not want to.

Patrick’s is a defiant welcome addition and a place I would recommend if you are going to Harry Potter or any other show nearby as our service from Blake was out of this world, as was the food. Leave it to the Wetanson family to know how to please.

**Look for some amazing live Irish music to also entertain, as you eat and drink on Thursday nights.
