Jim,

I went to the Patsy's Pizzeria website at http://www.patsyspizzeriany.com/index.htm and did not see references to Sinatra except a brief mention at http://www.patsyspizzeriany.com/press.htm. Is it possible that you confused that Patsy's with Patsy's Restaurant at http://www.patsys.com/? They have been trading off of Sinatra for as long as I can remember. There was a messy lawsuit between the two "Patsy's" some years ago, so confusion between the two is not uncommon.

Also, you might want to know that Patsy's in Harlem (or any of the later pizza Patsy's) never used starters. See Reply 1 at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,4125.msg34455.html#msg34455 and Reply 4 at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,4125.msg35344.html#msg35344. I don't know what Jeff V is using in Georgia.

Lastly, the Grimaldi's pizza chain discussed in this thread (its south/western affiliates) is not related to the Patsy's Pizzeria chain.

See how confusing it is! Yeah Jeff said he got his starter from Patsy's, which one is a mystery, but here's the site I refer to where you hear the Sinatra concert clip right away when the site opens... and it's neither of the ones you mention!

Jim,

It appears that the website you found is for the original Patsy's Harlem location. I wouldn't be surprised if they used the Sinatra piece to tick off the "other" Patsy's.

How's that possible? As far as I know, Pasty's doesn't use any starters.

Yep Peter, looks like, lol.

Hey, speaking of Sinatra, did you know you can rent his old Palm Springs house on a nightly basis? A mere $2600 a night, plus 350 service fee, on a 3 night minimum. So 8k and it's a cool 3 day weekend.

This site has a great then and now shots.

One does someplace! He said so, I didn't make this up!

It's been discussed here before too, I see...

I know at one time Varasano used a little yeast in conjunction with his Patsy's starter


Jeff's story was something like after talking them up for months someone gave him some.
