Yesterday I had the honor of being a witness to my best friends Bret and Yulia’s wedding service here in NYC. After the ceremony, we took advantage of the sunny summer day and found a table outside at Frank (2nd Ave, Btwn 5th & 6th St)
The sun was beaming onto our table and we ordered mimosas and beers to celebrate while we looked over the menu.
We’d all dined here before over the years and we also love Frank’s sister restaurants Lil Frankies and Supper.
Today we decided to order a few of their daily summer specials and share them between us. You can always count on the food from Frank to be fresh and delcious.
We started with the Fennel and Orange Salad….
Summer Tomato Salad….
Black Kale Caesar…..
The simplicity and freshness of using high quality produce is outstanding. The flavors of the tomatoes, olive oil, fennel and kale were all wonderful and we loved trying the 3 salads as we basked/ boiled in the mid afternoon sun.
We also ordered the Sausage & Polpette Hero Sandwich baby meatballs & carmella’s slow cooked “gravy”, the daily special spinach gnocci and a Frank BLT w/ roasted plum tomatoes, country bacon, arugula & e.v. mayo.
I always sort of feel like I am at my Aunty’s place when I eat at these restaurants. It has a home cooked, comfort food feel to it and the meals are always delicious.
Our waiter was attentive and friendly and even sent out a round of celebratory champagne for the newlyweds!
Frank is open from 10:30am 7 days for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
