PATSY’S ITALIAN RESTAURANT
West 56th STREET, NEW YORK, NY
Everyone knows patsy’s was Frank’s Favorite. Everyone in the know or who knew Frank. Patsy’s on West 56th Street was a long time favorite of Sinatra, who started eating at Patsy’s ever since his Star Began To Rise back in the 1940’s .. The Dorsey Brothers, Tommy and Jimmy brought Frank there for his first of thousands. Frank was going to Patsy’s ever since his New York Hoboken days, when he moved to Hasbrouk Heights New Jersey just a few blocks from famed Jersey Mob Boss Willie Moretti, who was Sinatra’s real-life Don to the fictitious Don Vito Corleone and Johnnie Fontaine (Sinatra) in Mario Puzzo and Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather.
Frank’s favorites at Patsy’s were; Clams Posilipo, Veal Milanese (extra Crispy), and Meatballs (Veal Meatballs). Patsy’s has become a sort of shrine to the great one, Francis Albert Sinatra and should be on the bucket list of anyone who calls themselves a major fan of the man, “Sinatra.”
