Our Review

Improv performer and chef Frankie Janisch's restaurant and bar retains much of the menu from when it was known as Frankie J's. To begin there's calamari ("friggin wicked," the menu brags), marinated mushrooms, and a mussel "martini" with white wine, rosemary, and lemon zest. There's also a "sports menu" (wings, tater tots, "Nacho Mama's Mound of Love") and a long list of novelty martinis, but leery of jelly bean garnishes, I opted for one with plain old Bombay Sapphire, which the bartender (who also juggled) insisted be stirred not shaken.
