Franky & Johnny's

321 Arabella St.
New Orleans , LA , United States
(504) 899-9146

Franky and Johnny's markets itself as a neighborhood restaurant in the Uptown district. From Arabella Street, the place looks more like an old general store than a restaurant, and once patrons step into the no-frills, dimly-lit interior they're greeted by a classic juke box cranking out jazz tunes and an unpretentious scene that incorporates old floor tiles, weathered brick, and wood paneled walls covered with sports memorabilia. The menu includes basic choices—like the shrimp platter, catfish platter, and pork chop platter—whose simplistic titles belie their exquisite flavor, as well as signatures such as boiled crawfish and roast beef po-boys.
