Our first restaurant, the original, the legend. Located in the heart of Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, Frankies 457 Spuntino is a place noted for its effortless warmth, beautiful garden, and a menu of Italian-American fare that includes such iconic recipes as the Meatballs with Pine Nuts and Raisins and the Cavatelli with Hot Sausage and Browned Sage Butter. New York Times editor Sam Sifton, in his final review as restaurant critic for the paper, wrote, “The best meal I had on the job? It was in the garden of Frankies 457 on a summer evening. Nothing was wrong. Everything was right. It would have been nice if it could have gone on forever.”
F&F is a widely acclaimed, New York-style pizzeria where we use ingredients of the highest quality, including Frankies 457 Specialty Foods Olive Oil and Bianco DiNapoli organic tomatoes, to produce pies that thrill while honoring tradition. F&F is located in a converted garage between sister restaurants Frankies 457 Spuntino and Franks Wine Bar. In a rave, The New Yorker wrote, “It’s timeless, it’s nostalgic, it makes me glad to be here now.”
An exceptional wine bar with pizzas and Sicilian-inspired flavors to match, Franks Wine Bar is located on the same pretty block as our sister establishments Frankies 457 Spuntino and F&F Pizzeria.
In 2023, for the very first time, we opened a restaurant outside of New York City: Frankies Nashville is a collaboration with our longtime team member John Burns Paterson, who moved down south to build a Frankies campus featuring a restaurant, pizzeria, specialty foods store, and amazing vibes.
