In honor of what would have been Frank Sinatra’s 102nd birthday, we bring you recipes (links at this article’s end) for some of his favorite dishes from Patsy’s Italian Restaurant of New York®, known for years as Frank’s favorite Italian fare.
Operated by the Scognamillo family since 1944, Patsy’s has had only three chefs. The late “Patsy” himself, his son Joe and Joe’s son Chef Sal Scognamillo, who’s been at the kitchen’s helm for the past 30 years.
According to the restaurant, Sinatra first met Patsy in 1942 and a lifelong friendship endured. His legacy lives on, not only at Patsy’s, but with all who love and appreciate his music. Speaking of music, Sinatra has sold more than 150 million records worldwide.
