Bar

“This is the second of our nicest restaurants in town. Patrona offers upscale food in a relaxed atmosphere. Professionals often stop by after work to enjoy an adult beverage and a swanky meal before heading home after the work day. There is outdoor seating where you may see the stars, and the passers-by as you enjoy your tasty food. Be prepared to pay $20-$30 (and up if you drink) per person, though.”
