Re: “The Spot

Even though I have lived in Frankie J's neighborhood for years I had never been there before. Boy have I been missing out. Upon entering not only am I promptly greeted by the host but I am also greeted by Frankie himself. The tables are great and the restaurant is wonderfully designed.For a change sitting by the kitchen is actually a good thing. You can watch everything that is going on.

The appetizers are great. Frankie made us a sampling platter and the ravioli and mussels really stood out as awesome appetizers. The entree I had was mussells marinara and the mussels were not tough at all and the sauce had that perfect kick. For dessert I had a piece of apple cake and I was in heaven.

There was not a show when I was there but I suspect that I would have had even more fun had there been one. The food, the atmosphere and the staff make this one of the best hidden gems of this up and coming uptown neighborhood. I will be back and I will bring friends.
