This is not our first time around! From 1986 until 2002, Mary Lou (Mom) and Carole (daughter) owned a hot jazz spot in downtown Baltimore known as Buddies Pub & Jazz Club. This was a famous Mt. Vernon stomping ground where locals and celebrities mingled, enjoying award-winning foods, great spirits and classic straight-ahead rhythm & blues jazz from the Buddies Pub House Band. Heading the kitchen was Chef Carole M. Brosso CEC, a 1984 graduate of NY’s renowned Culinary Institute of America ~ where she put out made-from-scratch authentic pub fare with 5-star qualities! Over the years, Buddies received many awards/recognitions including City Paper & Baltimore Magazine’s “best of...” Burger, 10-Alarm Chili, Wings, Jazz, Salad Bar & Karaoke. Chef Carole’s experience before Buddies included Boston’s Best Brunch of 1985 at St. Botolph’s Restaurant, opening J. Bildner & Sons, an upscale deli/market in the Back Bay area of Boston and even, doing an externship at The Buccaneer Hotel in St. Croix, USVI., under a pastry chef who worked under A. Escoffier, the father of modern culinary cuisine. Chef Carole thanks her Mother for instilling the love of cooking at an early age and always supporting her ideas & dreams. Our goals at Patrick’s are simple ~ to continue the great fresh menus we are locally known for, paired with new ideas, both in the kitchen & from the bar, bringing life to your palate and going easy on your wallet. More so, our friendly staff and menu varieties will keep you coming back for more. Patrick’s wants to thank you all for your continued support!
