Venue Info

Purple Patch, a Filipino-American restaurant in the former Tonic space, looks like a success story from Flip This House. The upstairs dining room screams date-night and serves large-format dishes, like whole fried snapper escabeche, that won’t break the bank at $22. For basement-bar loyalists, take solace knowing the sporty-meets-sloppy feel remains intact, only the food and drinks are better.
