Sitting outside with Frank’s handmade pasta in NYC!

Black Linguini w/ Frutti di Mare – Just Perfect!

Delicious handmade pasta in my belly!

Frank in NYC is a cozy and homey Italian kitschy looking place with some outside seating. Can be somewhat cramped as this is a popular spot, and on a nice weather night people want to eat at the sidewalk tables. Hey, we all know it’s a NYC thing that we all love. Just put your name on the list and do the hover like a senior citizen waiting to jump on that penny slot machine as soon as someone gets off. The Evil Eye is all too real!

Wandering the area recently it was a perfect night to finally sit outside and enjoy a meal as the swamp ass heat of summer actually disappeared for a bit in NYC. So glad we gave Frank a shot. He’s a fine gent indeed!

Pears and Gorgonzola. Mmmm…..Cheese.

Started off with a bottle of sparkling water, and as an appetizer a plate of Sliced Pears and Gorgonzola. Well…. because cheese!

I had the Black Linguini w/ Frutti di Mare and it was terrific! There was plenty of seafood in that bowl and the pasta was heavenly. My gal had the Handmade Ravioli of the Day which was Butternut Squash and it was righteous! Tasted like dessert!

Great spot to people watch as the world walks by. Casual and not rushed. Cash only so be aware to hit the ATM beforehand. Can seem a bit pricey for what is it, but the food is solid here. They offer limited reservations on certain nights and hours so be prepared to wait a few minutes for a table. This is a locals joint in the East Village that does it right.

Handmade Ravioli! Ohhhh Yeahhh!

Oh, and killer 80’s hair metal and classic rock played here inside by the small bar area. Might just have to come back here for a glass or two of wine and rock out. Always a win! \m/

  1. Looks like a really cozy place. Will be in New York next week, and I’m bringing my hungry pizza-monster husband. Would like to know which pizza place you think is the best in the city?

    1. Hey Mitzie!

      Sorry for the late reply. As for pizza there really are too many to name. Honestly, most of the most popular spots are overrated for sure. I stick to a few local joints close to where I live that are just as good any anywhere else in the city. Hope you found a good one.
