Today, as expected, Frank Bruni awarded two stars to Franny’s, giving the kind of rave review we’ve come to expect when he runs into a quaint, family-owned Italian restaurant that doesn’t take reservations:
Other restaurants have honorable pies, admirable lettuces or noteworthy salumi. But take it from a cranky Franny’s doubter, now a besotted Franny’s believer: not many do all three with as much joy and distinction as Franny’s.
Eater took the one-star odds, while NYJ guessed correctly that Frank would give Franny’s a two-star smooch. We win $6 on our hypothetical $1 bet, while Eater loses a dollar.
