Aretsky's Patroon



open table

The first thing to know about Aretsky’s Patroon is that this place is very expensive. It’s nice inside - with leather booths, a long wine list, and good service - but it’s not a place we’d send you to spend your own money, unless you have so much that you can’t actually remember how much you get paid every month. If you’re getting lunch or dinner on your corporate card, though, that’s a different story. The large plates on the meat-focused menu, like rack of lamb or suckling pig, are fine, but the best dishes here are actually the sides, especially the wild mushrooms over blue cheese grits. If you don’t quite finish talking shop at the table, continue over some drinks on the roof.
