My Love for Food. How it Began.
Patsy's Porkers has two meanings for me.
First, the name honors my grandfather Pasquale "Patsy" Cubiotti. My grandfather raised me when I was very young and I will always remember his strong work ethic and his passion for family. You could say that he instilled in me the love I have for my famly and friends.
In 1910, Patsy came to Ellis Island from Rome to build a life for his bride-to-be, Gracia Grasta, who was born in Caltanissetta, Sicily. He came with nothing and built a beautiful life, raising 6 children. I love him and miss him dearly.
Second, Patsy's Porkers honors my grandfather's passion for food. He showed me as a child how to prepare traditional Italian food, sharing some of his favorites. One of them was pork, which is a mainstay in any Italian kitchen.
It's what adds the "fla-vah" (flavor). I have tried to incorporate his favorites – as well as mine – into our menu.
We use fresh, never frozen, ingredients, as well as local produce and quality meat products from local purveyors. Our prices reflect a fair cost to both our customers, as well as ourselves. Your satisfaction is our number one priority.
We pride ourselves in giving you the best and we will treat you as Patsy would have treated you – As One Of The Family!
Thank you for choosing us, Mangia!!!
