Until recently, I’d only experienced Frank’s as take-out when staying at a friend’s home in the area. This time instead of picking at their pizza from the cardboard box, we sat at a table in this neighborhood joint while sipping a carafe of their house cabernet sauvignon ($15.95).
The entrees had the typical accompanying trattoria house salad consisting of iceberg lettuce and fresh tomatoes with the dressing serving on the side. The housemade eggplant parmigiana ($12.95) consisted of thin eggplant slices, tomato sauce and cheeses baked until a delicious amalgam of flavors.
The chicken rosemary ($14.95) included tender slices of chicken in a rosemary spiked tomato sauce, some green beans and carrots, accompanied by a side of spaghetti. That sauce was thinner and fresher than a traditional boiled-for-hours tomato sauce, redolent of sliced garlic, fresh rosemary and sun-dried tomatoes.
I’d recommend this neighborhood trattoria.
