On Armani Street, in Gothic City, is an imposing skyscraper and former hideout of the Black Masks - now taken as a stronghold by the Tierra Mia gang. It is part restaurant, part bar, part nightclub, and all fortress.
The Finest Dining on the East Coast
"We here at The Patio are prepared to offer you the greatest experience of your life. Guaranteed fresh, grown locally, and cooked right when you order."
To dine within the walls of The Patio is to indulge yourself. Only the finest ingredients are put into the recipes here, straight from the roots of the Black Masks organization in Italy. Pastas are an automatic inclusion, but the chefs also are masters in roasting meats and baking various cakes. The dessert menu is just as imposing as the appetizers and entrees. The waiting room is always packed, but it's for a very good reason. People from all over the world come here to eat and party, starting at the restaurant portion and working their way down into the bar and nightclub as the hours tick by.
This is just the start of restarting the economy of Gothic City, rebuilding it from the ground-up with cold hard cash. Mr. Harvey personally visits the restaurant, his overwhelming charisma hypnotizing patrons and inviting them to stay for a while. The chef's special is always the Sicilian Roast, which is a 60% fat 40% meat cut of pork, lamb, or duck. Coated in nothing but a thin almond butter glaze and braised until it is almost entirely melted, the incredible heat of the ovens churn the fats into a succulent gravy so that the meat stews in nothing other than pure flavor. Only then is the meat meticulously cut out and served, shaved of any imperfections and offered with one side.
Of course, if there is any trouble, unsavory patrons are always given a special table with Mr. Harvey himself. Strangely, they're never seen for the rest of the night.
But dining is not limited to the rustic brilliance of old-world Italian homeliness. The modern swing has also influenced other areas where patrons may choose to sit and enjoy their stay at The Patio. A massive aquarium absorbs the ceiling of the second-most traveled dining experience available. Here, the saltwater and freshwater fish dart and linger around the tables, with patrons able to watch feeding times and various shows with dolphins and orcas. Teams of professional choreographed swimmers are even invited to perform here on occasion.
Yet for all the nostalgic hardiness of the rustic dining and the graceful beauty of the underwater dining, there is one place that dominates traffic for all of The Patio's tables.
The prestigious skyline dining is a famous cornerstone of The Patio, and features a kitchen and staff of its own so that the patrons are not served unfairly given elevator traffic. Here, the length and breadth of the Gothic airways are opened for all paying customers to see. Rigorously defended night and day, not to mention, considering the living warzone aspect of the city itself.
The Patio is a huge step on the road for Gothic to be rebuilt, after all, and it is still a long way away from coming back together. Here, at the edge of the world, the scars can be seen clearly.
Notorious members of the Black Masks family often congregate here in large reunions from across the world, with Mr. Harvey hosting private shows and banquets for his loved ones. Yet, by a special once-in-a-lifetime invite, some outsiders are allowed here only at the discretion that they never speak of what is discussed. If they ever do, the Black Masks know who they are. They know how to find them. And they will make them disappear.
