Tyson's Outing At Patsy's American

Patsy's American

Our previous Tyson's spot, i.e., Paddy Barry is closed and we are heading a block down the street, to Patsy's American. It was opened last June, timely for us. Let us check it out! - We booked the area by the patio, in the back bar, for this event - Drink specials including the usual suspect Mer-Tini:) - Event is 21+ - Come one, come all; this is the most friendliest event you have ever attended! - Feel free to invite your friends. They don't necessarily have to be a member PARKING INFO Ample parking space available. However, the event involves drinking and we highly encourage you to take a taxi service or a ride share. DRINK RESPONSIBLY. ABOUT THE VENUE (taken from The Eater; June 4, 2019) Patsy’s American is an old railway station-inspired venue for late-night comfort foods, seafood, and cocktails. Patsy’s imports some of the best-selling dishes across the prolific restaurant group’s regional portfolio of nine other brands — Sweetwater Tavern, Carlyle, and Mike’s “American” grill, for starters — into a cavernous 300-seat dining room. The steak frites and French dip from Jackson’s appear on the menu at Patsy’s along with the Maine lobster roll from Coastal Flats. There are also barbecue baby back ribs from Sweetwater. Patsy’s offers three sizes of mixed seafood plates: a platter, a tower, and a triple decker. Norton reports that oyster shooters with Tito’s Vodka have been a surprise best seller. Patsy’s Lobster Roll on a grilled roll with roasted corn on the cob and hand-cut fries (market price). Rey Lopez/For Patsy’s Norton thinks there’s enough drinking demand in Tysons Corner to justify its 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. hours. Beyond the main dining room, a back 150-seat bar and patio also welcomes patrons for after-hours dining and drinking. Along with 40 beers on tap, an Old Fashioned recipe from Carlyle is also an early hit. Short smoked salmon salad. Rey Lopez/Patsy’s The kitchen is trying to keep up with demand for its new buttermilk fried chicken sandwich at lunch. The fried poultry, which also makes it way onto the Charleston Salad with spiced pecans, is part of a late-night menu that kicks off at 11 p.m. with a pared-down selection of burgers and starters like spinach and artichoke dip. Patsy’s is named after Norton’s mother, the matriarch of the 45-year-old Northern Virginia restaurant group that also includes Artie’s, Ozzie’s, and Silverado. The menu honors her signature desserts with hot fudge sundaes and warm bread pudding. Patsy’s father’s flag is on the wall from when he served in Army. While the decor is mostly built of kitsch — there are Terracotta warriors sporting Bart Simpson and Shrek heads and an iconic painting of Seinfeld’s George Costanza in his underwear — one art piece stands out. Norton says the charcoal Picasso on the wall is an original. The charcoal Picasso used to hang in sister restaurant Carlyle 30 years ago. Patsy’s/official photo The main dining room is anchored at one end by a classic station clock, alongside lots of green ironwork detailing. The mix of artwork also includes New York City street art Norton personally sourced, along with skate decks from Orin Swift’s wine bottle labels. A mashup of mirrors and artwork are splashed across Patsy’s soaring red brick walls. Patsy’s [official] Norton says Patsy’s has attracted a “ton of regulars” and people who are unfamiliar with the group’s restaurants. Patsy’s was designed by Great American Restaurants, Street Sense, and Leon Chatelain, built by Forrester Construction. Patsy’s [official] Norton’s parents, Patsy and Randy Norton, started the decades-old restaurant group with a small pizzeria in Fairfax that’s since grown to a 14-business collection of Northern Virginia staples. Expect coffered ceilings, green Mohair booths, and servers in black uniforms delivering wagyu steaks, branzino, and wines from an American-heavy list. The main dining room at Patsy’s features a bustling dinner party attended by Ghandi and Abe Lincoln.
