Ever since Patsy’s Pizza, the famous New York Italian, opened an outpost here in New Rochelle, I’ve been eager to go. Yesterday, I finally got my chance.
The space, which formerly housed the restaurants On the Waterfront and RRQ, received a full makeover and has never looked better. Sleek, simple, and elegant, with both indoor and outdoor seating to take full advantage of a unique location overlooking our marina.
And the pizza? Terrific, especially if you’re a fan of thin crust like me. My guest and I split a margarita with prosciutto and arugula. I greedily gobbled up about three-quarters of the pie and then stared sadly at the empty platter as it was carried away.
I did not have a chance to try anything else on the menu, but judging by the ample-sized and uniformly happy crowd, I am guessing that my pizza wasn’t the only winner. I’ll have to come back with the kids, so we can do some more sampling.
Patsy’s is located at 2 Pelham Road in New Rochelle.
