For the better part of a year now, we've heard word of a new West Village sister restaurant to Frankies 17, Frankies 457, and Prime Meats, but folks inside the operation kept mum about the location. Now that they've gone public with the Portland expansion and the publicity tour for the cookbook is pretty much wrapped up, perhaps it's time for the dynamic Italian duo to finally open up the new spot near home base.
According to the Community Board 2 agenda, the Franks are hoping for a liquor license for the old Hudson Corner Cafe space, a long empty storefront at 570 Hudson, where Hudson meets West 11th St. It will be a very, very welcome addition to the Hudson St. corridor, which has looked dire of late.
