I recently went to Patzeria Family and Friends, an Italian place located few blocks from Times Square, in the heart of Hell's Kitchen. It was for lunch and the place was empty. I think I went there a long time ago, looking for a restaurant after a movie, and the experience was not that great. But, hey, it was a while back and I was ready to give it another chance. Looking at the decor, you can really see the influence of Times Square, with all the posters from popular shows decorating the walls.
For close to $10, they offer for lunch an entrée and a soda, a fairly common formula for that area.
After eating some delicious warm garlic bread, I got my dish: the antipasto salad.
I rarely order salads, but it was too warm outside to order pasta...thet salad had peppers, olives, ham, prosciutto, salami...It was a good salad, especially if you like this kind of charcuterie.
The lunch at Patzeria Family and Friends was good, and the service courteous and efficient. I might go back for dinner finally!
Enjoy (I did)!
