The vision of #now is the only real vision
All else is corrupted by #time and #emotion
This moment was now

The #CipolliniPizza @LilFrankies
We fire roast the #babyonions then peel them into leaves and toss them in olive oil so they stay soft and sweet to stand up to the sharp provolone cheese, the dried oregano laced breadcrumbs and the spicy #arugula
This is one of those #pizzas that haunts you with #texture, you keep thinking about the #breadcrumbs and #onions together, like a #classic roasted stuffed onion with #cheese, but on a #pizza, and with all that #salty cheese and the #greens just cleansing and waking it all up over and over
I’m really in love with how this all just came to me and then I ate it and smiled ear to ear, that’s honestly all I ever need from what I do, that success, or more than that the satisfaction coupled with the continued reassurance that I am on the right path

#SteakAndEggs for #Brunch @FrankRestaurant
But with #crispyeggs, and not just any #steak, but #marinated #skirtsteak, and freshly fried #redpotatoes with plenty of #onions and #rosemary, #arugula, and a #oliveoil roasted #plumtomato make up a hearty #breakfast plate that is #simple, #healthy and perfect for a #lazylongbrunch with #3for1BrunchDrinks all day

#Wednesday is #SpaghettiDay
Because why not
Because everyone has connected with #spaghettiandmeatballs
Because we know it means a lot to you
Cause it means a lot to us too

The #WoodFireRoastedEggplant @LilFrankies ends all arguments about #Eggplant
The old wives tales are thick and honestly totally #ridiculous
Eggplant is not bitter, never was and never will be, this #myth perpetuated against this #harmless #defenseless #vegetable aren’t fair and must end now
We do NOTHING to this eggplant at all, nada, we simply #roast it whole next to a #roaringinferno and #char the skin completely, we then crack it open, hit it with a spicy #oliosanto, coarse #CyprusBlackSalt and #CoratinaOliveOil and call it a glorious day in #NewYorkCity
I challenge anyone who hates eggplant to try this dish @lilfrankies and if you don’t completely agree with me after it, I will gladly refund you

#GrandmasGravy
I would like to extend a special thanks on #MothersDay to all the #Grandmothers from #Naples, who came to this country and brought their #RaguNapoletano along with them, like my grandmother #CarmelaPanella
You turned #Sunday into the best day of the week, and Monday’s into the best sandwich day at school that any kid could hope for
And because @FrankRestaurant is a house built firmly on the tradition of #SundayRagu, and all the memories us #NYers have of pulling up to the tables of strong #ItalianWomen, dying for that #Sugo, fueled a #raguphenomenon that continues unabated to this day

Happy Mother’s Day Mommy

Don’t believe the #hype
Because my restaurants are not infallible. We make mistakes just like everyone else and if you visit us enough, it could happen. We might overcook things or undercook things, we might even forget things
It’s super rare but when we are really busy we might fail to get tables seated on time, or take too long to get to tables, and sometimes in the heat of the moment we aren’t as nice as we could be at the door, but here is the catch with us
We own up to our mistakes, we don’t get defensive and we immediately make the moves needed to fix them without an attitude
Additionally, if any of that breaks down you always have me here ready to make it right from above, and hopefully our exchange will show you you can trust us, and, make you even more comfortable the next time you come in

This #Spring I brought you to #Italy, literally by the hand and led you around, there, I got #inspired and #electrified to get back into my own NYC kitchens, and then, with you along for the ride, we implemented 6 new #springspecials at each restaurant in a #flowstate with full #transparency live and un produced on social media
Welcome to #RealFrank,
Where now, these impossibly thick #bursting jumbo #whiteasparagus could cause a war at your table
Friends once thick as thieves are seen ripping each other’s jugulars out for the last perfectly cooked stalk
Brothers and sisters are caught devising the executions of their own parents for the last combined bite of perfect #crispyeggyolk, and #sagebutter drenched #asparagusfloret

My #Mom #AmaliaPrisinzano on her wedding day
For Mother’s Day who do you #trust?
You trust who’s been feeding you all year
You trust who always welcomes you like #family
And you trust who will make you look like a real G in front of her
I don’t have to sell you on bringing us your Moms for Mother’s Day, because what we do all year sells itself
But I do want to thank your Moms for giving us you all year
So if you do bring us your Moms this Mother’s Day at @FrankRestaurant and @SupperNYC I’m going to pour her #FreeProsecco all day and night and I’m going to give the rest of your table #3for1BrunchDrinks for brunch
We still have room available and we really want to be there for you this #MothersDay so email us at reservations@Frankcares.com or call 212-420-0040 (between 11am-5pm) and let us organize everything for you and as always I’m here to solve all and any issues
#YouAreOurG #WeAreYourLocalSpot #TrustUs #WeWontLetYouDown
