Frankies Spuntino

457 Court St.
Brooklyn , NY , United States
(718) 403-0033

Chefs Frank Falcinelli and Frank Castronovo are graduates of many high-end restaurant kitchens, but when they opened this neo-rustic Brooklyn spot in 2004, the menu reflected their childhoods in Queens, with Italian-American dishes like meatballs and braciole. Executed with chef-y rigor and super fresh ingredients, their food transcends its humble origins. The original brick-walled location has spawned a red-sauce food empire on both sides of the Brooklyn Bridge that includes a Frankies in the West Village, the Spanish-influenced Francesca on the Lower East Side, the German-American spot Prime Meats, a specialty foods store, and Café Pedlar.
