Restaurant Unstoppable with Eric Cacciatore

Originally from Eastern Texas, Patrick Patterson landed on the steps of the Food Fight Restaurant Group in Madison, WI where he quickly rose from part-time bartender to first time GM & owner. In 2015, Patterson and his family relocated to the NH Seacoast where Patterson took the title of GM at Block Six, a restaurant at 3S Artspace.

That is where the story ended when we last spoke with Patterson. Head over to to pick up where we left off. Today Patterson serves at the GM of Cornerstone Artisanal Pizza and Craft Beer, located in Portsmouth NH.
