Franny's in Brooklyn

Franny's in Brooklyn

Franny's in Brooklyn is one of my all time favorites. When you walk in the front door to the amazing wood burning aroma coming from the pizza oven you just know things are gonna be good. Its a cozy simple room with an open kitchen. Servers seem happy and comfortable, and its kid friendly which I like. It makes me happy to see families thoroughly enjoying a delicious meal and each other.

Take advantage of anything made in the wood burning oven. Their housemade sausage roasted in the oven is ridiculously good. Served over charred radicchio. Any of their vegetable dishes are so simple and fresh. I really admire Franny's for locally sourcing everything they serve. On this particular night Franny's was involved in Dine Out for Irene. They were donating 10% of sales to the cause which helps support local upstate farmers that were affected. The place was busy the whole time we were there, so they had a great night.

OK here we go with the pizza. Just done to perfection. I couldn't speak. If you know the art of authentic neapolitan pizza. Go to franny's. If you dont...go to Franny's and find out.

Canolo hellolo. This was light, flakey, creamy, crispy, lemony heaven. The pistachio's were ever so slightly salty which really balanced with the creamy filling and lightly crisp sweet shell. Perfectly made espresso's were had followed by an amaro. I couldn't have been happier!
