From the Publisher:
A compilation of the best in southern Italian cookery from a classic New York City restaurant introduces more than one hundred recipes for such dishes as Tomato Bruschetta, Mussels Areganata, Eggplant Parmigiana, Pasta Fagiole, Veal Marsala, and Fettucine Alfredo, spiced up with personal notes and reminiscences and helpful cooking hints.From the Restaurant That Frank Sinatra Made Famous

Of the thousands of restaurants in New York City, very few withstand the tests of time—and only one can lay claim to being Frank Sinatra’s favorite. And where Frank went, his friends followed—from close pals such as Tony Bennett and fellow Rat Packers Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. to the show-biz colleagues they brought in.

Established nearly sixty years ago, Patsy’s has long been a celebrity favorite and a New York institution. Why? Great food, family friendliness, and a welcoming atmosphere that makes you feel like you’ve come home. And the fare is the classic southern Italian cuisine that’s become America’s comfort food: Mussels Arreganata, Fettuccine Alfredo, Rigatoni Sorrentino, Chicken Parmigiana, Veal Marsala, Shrimp Scampi, Tiramisù . . . a greatest hits of Neapolitan-influenced dishes.

And Patsy’s Cookbook provides more than recipes: also in the mix are anecdotes from family and friends, including the occasion when Pablo Picasso tried to give Patsy a painting; the time that the restaurant opened on Thanksgiving Day just for Frank Sinatra; Aunt Anna’s rather unorthodox autograph request of Sean “P. Diddy” Combs; and the story of the roast suckling pig delivered to Jackie Gleason’s hotel suite.

Here is a remarkable collection of 100 perfectly executed, delicious recipes, heartwarming stories of a successful family business, and entertaining celebrity tales, capturing the full experience of a New York City institution. Patsy’s Cookbook is an invitation to join the extended family that’s proud to call Patsy’s their second home.
Annotation:
Patsy's has been on West 56th Street in New York City since 1944, and its classic, unpretentious Italian food has always drawn the famous. (Frank Sinatra was a regular; so was Rudy Giuliani.) Patsy's grandson, Sal, has finally produced a cookbook that includes Frank's favorites (Clams Posillipo, Veal Cutlet's Milanese) as well as other delectable dishes: Asparagus Rolls, Mussels Arreganata, Vegetable Napoleon, Fried Zucchini Blossoms, Maddalena Raspberry Cookies, and much more.
