Frankie's

Go here. And get the antipasta plate and the $5 house red. Kim, Al, and I had a lovely late dinner at Frankie's in Brooklyn on Saturday. Its Alison's favorite and it absolutely lived up to her high praises. They have a second location on the Lower East Side, with four tables and a long wait, but we prefer the Brooklyn local for its humble sweetness. Its off the beaten path, somewhere in Carroll Gardens but not the cool part.

We had a blast eating olives off each other's plates, arguing about Philip Seymore Hoffman's level of attractiveness, and listening to Interpol on Kim's ipod until 12am. Late long dinners=my favorite thing.

sarah - love this place. Was there with my buddy Will (my radio co-host) in May '07. It was the site of his Brooklyn nephew's wedding reception. We bought baseball cards from the store next door and sat at the bar for hours opening packs of 1980 cards and sharing them with the bartender and other patrons. It was a hoot. I'm sending Katie a CD of the radio show - await your valued opinion. Cheers, David
