Oh Frankie's (457 Court St. between 4th Place & Luquer St., 718-403-0033). Can I ever express just how much I love your French Toast? I don't think I can rave enough, but I'll try. My boyfriend and I arrived just before opening on Saturday morning (11am) in order to secure my favorite seat in the dining room - the two-top at the back in front of the window looking out at the backyard and the train tracks beyond. It's so cozy there. We started with some Stumptown lattes, creamy, caramel-y drinks made lovingly by the bartender.
I of course got the French Toast, two of the most delicious, thick pieces of fried egg-dipped bread you'll find anywhere. A few pieces of fruit on the side add a fresh, sweet & tangy burst, and the real maple syrup is amber goodness.
A side of meaty bacon is a necessity too. Salty, hearty and not greasy at all. It's the best bacon in town.
We also got an order of the Broccoli Rabe & Sausage Frittata. Served at room temperature, it's moist, dense and so flavorful, filled with big pieces of whatever it's made of - usually they serve two kinds. A nicely dressed little salad is served on the side to provide some zing.
This meal is absolute perfection and I'm never unhappy or disappointed with it. Go.
