A small funky Italian spot with dependable and tasty small plates.

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.

Food and drink

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.

Ambience

Lower East Side cool is impersonated with a tin-ceilinged roof, black and white tiles and cozy tables, all with a hip crowd.

Service

Young and sweet, I find the servers here more personable than at the Brooklyn outpost.

Location

On hip Clinton Street, which has quickly become a Lower East Side foodie Mecca.

Price advice

The small plates add up quickly, running from US$7-$17, so don’t over order.

Tables to book

There is a no-reservation policy here but the table selection is quite uniform anyway.

Branches

The Brooklyn Frankies is located at 457 Court Street - see the website below for details.
