An Evening with Frank Falcinelli & Frank Castronovo of the Frankies Spuntino Group

Wednesday, November 13, 2019  |  6:30PM
$225 Sommelier-selected wines and hospitality fee
Limited to 22 guests

The Franks grew up together in Queens, learning the vernacular of Italian cooking from their immigrant families. Both friends chose a life in the kitchen, one they pursued separately, training in some of the best kitchens in the world. They reconnected by chance in 2003 and decided to open a restaurant that would embrace their roots. They settled on a tree-lined stretch of the Italian-American enclave of Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn and came up with a menu featuring salads, meatballs, eggplant marinara, fresh pastas, and more, all prepared with a light touch and offered at an affordable price. Now in its 15th year, Frankies 457 Spuntino is often cited as a vital member of Brooklyn's culinary revitalization and a lasting inspiration for serious chefs to embrace warmth and informality.

The Franks also own F&F Pizzeria and Franks Wine Bar, located in Brooklyn. They produce their own highly rated line of olive oils and, together, along with acclaimed writer Peter Meehan, they are the co-authors of The Frankies Spuntino Kitchen Companion and Cooking Manual.
