Expert review of Frankies Spuntino
This 24-seat outpost of the beloved Brooklyn restaurant serves up the same excellent food and good wine list. I always make a trip to one of the two Frankies on any New York visit.
The fresh Italian dishes always use high quality and artisanal ingredients. I particularly like their escarole salad with sliced red onion pecorino and walnuts, homemade gnocchi with marinara sauce and fresh vegetables like roasted carrot and string beans.
Lower East Side cool is impersonated with a tin-ceilinged roof, black and white tiles and cozy tables, all with a hip crowd.
Young and sweet, I find the servers here more personable than at the Brooklyn outpost.
On hip Clinton Street, which has quickly become a Lower East Side foodie Mecca.
The small plates add up quickly, running from US$7-$17, so don’t over order.
There is a no-reservation policy here but the table selection is quite uniform anyway.
The Brooklyn Frankies is located at 457 Court Street - see the website below for details.
