The odd, nonsensical name of this Korean-ish spot is an unfortunate harbinger of the disjointed dining experience ahead of you. “Patate” refers to the French fries served with housemade dipping sauces, or accompanying signature Korean-style chicken. Unfortunately the latter doesn’t live up the standards of BonChon or any of its knockoffs, nor do the spicy wings, which are dry and offered with generic blue cheese dip. A seafood pancake starter tastes off, as though the shrimp were the not-very-good frozen kind, and deep-fried mandoo dumplings are indistinguishable from something in the frozen-foods section—Trader Joe’s might even have a tastier version. The only dish we tried with any cred on a recent visit was the bibimbap, served in a stone bowl and delicious despite being charred, with firm, fresh veggies on top and (albeit stinting) shreds of flavorful bulgogi beef. Despite the efforts at ambience – Christmas lights on the wall, a projector TV, and, bizarrely, a Best of Broadway soundtrack, there’s little here that appeals.
