A couple of alarmed tipsters have written in to report that Cafe Pedlar on the Lower East Side is dropping it breakfast program and its neighbor Frankies Spuntino is losing its lunch. And after contacting the folks at Frankies Inc., we have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is yes, indeed, the two connected restaurants will only open for lunch on Fridays beginning at 11 AM and for brunch on the weekends, starting at 9 AM. The rest of the week it's dinner only.
The (kind of) good news? It's for a good reason. The Franks are focusing their efforts on their new Hudson Street location and need all the manpower they can muster to get the place ready for its debut. A rep tells Eater that it's "part of our ongoing quest to improve service and food. Once Hudson street is open, we will be serving breakfast and lunch every day at that location."
