Here's some Friday afternoon late breaking news courtesy of those fun little chatterboxes on Mouthfuls. According to a couple of commenters over there, Prospect Heights' ever-packed highchair haven and pizza godsend Franny's is relocating down the street and moving into a former Blockbuster (which was a well known restaurant for quite a spell) on Flatbush between Sterling Place and 8th Ave. According to one poster, they'll keep the same format, and there will be two brick ovens, a take-out counter, a large main dining room, and a private dining room.
And the owners are rumored to be holding on to the original location for a new concept, perhaps a fine dining restaurant.
Reached by phone, owner Francine Stephens said she's not ready to disclose any information about the rumored deal at this time, but it's an exciting prospect for Park Slope and Prospect Heights residents.
