Announcing Patxi’s tasty new menu items
We’ve been spending quite a bit of time in the kitchen lately. Even the biggest pizza lovers have a hard time eating it every day, so we’ve been working on perfecting a few small plates that spice things up, excite your taste buds, or even make a great substitute for pizza on those rare days when you’re craving something different.
The Burrata Bruschetta is comprised of creamy burrata cheese, basil pesto, and tomato confit, served with warm focaccia. This decadent appetizer is a great one to share. The warm focaccia with the cool and creamy burrata balances out the sweet tomato and flavorful pesto. Once you dip your bread into it, you’ll taste why this may soon become an addiction!
Our new meatball dish was inspired by a long-time favorite, ‘Old Style’ Boston-Italian recipe that has been passed down for generations. We use sustainably raised beef and a Chicago-style Italian sausage blended together with a few other ingredients. The meatball is braised in a housemade tomato sauce and then topped with fresh basil and Grana Padano, a milder version of Parmigiano Reggiano.
Light, fresh and simple, the Arugula Salad is made with wild arugula tossed with fresh squeezed lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, and a generous portion of shaved Grana Padano. The peppery taste of the fresh arugula is complemented by the tart citrus, which makes it a refreshing way to tempt the palate.
The Chopped Salad, a true meal in a salad, is lightly dressed with our new housemade roasted garlic vinaigrette. This salad is packed with goodness! We start with finely chopped crisp romaine hearts and then add pulled chicken, spicy salami, and cubes of whole milk mozzarella. But, we don’t stop there. The salad also has roasted red pepper, kidney beans, fresh basil, chopped scallions, pickled pepperoncini, and sweet cherry tomatoes to fill you up without feeling heavy. Think you might pass on the pizza tonight? Stopping by for a quick lunch? This is definitely a tasty alternative.
Here at Patxi’s, pizza is our passion. But in addition to that, we’re focused on doing things right and making every experience in our restaurant the best it can be. These new menu items take all of your favorite things about our pizza—the fresh ingredients and crave-worthy flavors—and used them to create some alternative, tasty accompaniments.
