The Story Behind Patty Jean’s Country Restaurant Coming To Newport New York
Get ready for home style cooking coming to Newport, New York with Patty Jean's Country Restaurant.
Patty Jean's Country Restaurant's menu will feature home style food with the home cooking feel. Imagine what Grandma served every weekend, made with fresh meats and fresh ingredients. You'll never leave with an empty stomach. We were lucky to interview Joanne, the owner, and get the full story.
The name Patty Jean's first came to be back on August 26, 2017. On August 3, 2018, almost a year later, the building they were located in caught fire. The families dream from that day forward was to rebuild, even though they didn't know how long it would take. Currently, they are finalizing some construction and plan on having a target opening date in June 2021.
So, the actual name of the restaurant, Patty Jean's, came from Joanne's mother in law, who passed away from cancer in 2014.
"She had a love for cooking, that she passed down to her sons. All our girls agreed it should be in honor of their nana, Patty Jean"
Patty Jean's will be well known for their fish fries, chicken and biscuits, and their big breakfast menu for Saturday and Sunday. In the unique world of COVID, the restaurant will be family run nd operated. Joanne's husband and one of her daughters will do the cooking, while the other two daughters will be out waitressing.
You can find them before their old business at 8218 State Route 28 Newport, NY 13416.
