Next Tuesday, the chefs and restaurateurs Frank Castronovo and Frank Falcinelli will finally unveil their long in coming westward expansion Frankies 570 on the corner of Hudson and West 11th Streets. The menu here will echo those of the original spuntino on Court Street and its newer (though still half a decade old) Lower East Side sister, with all the fan favorites like braciola, cavatelli with sausage, crostini, and their meatball parmigiana with a few additions including farro with cotechino and poached eggs in the morning, grilled squid with watermelon and tomatoes, egg ravioli, and garganelli with rabbit ragu. And that's not all that's new.
First, they take reservations, a welcome addition, especially for some persnickety West Villagers who don't like to wait (resys here). They're also offering cocktails here, a long list of apertifs with a focus on light drinks low on the alcohol content. Like the other locations, 570 will offer an all Italian wine list, but here some sparkling and red wine will be served on tap.
And as for the look, well it looks a lot more Prime Meats than Frankies, with a painstakingly assembled wooden ceiling imported from Germany, wide planked wood floors, dark paneling, and low lights. It seats about 90 inside, and will eventually seat 32 outside.
Starting Tuesday, she'll be open from 8 AM - 1 AM every day.
