Frankies, Cafe Pedlar Ending Weekday Breakfast, Lunch Service

Some bad news. Frankies Sputino and Cafe Pedlar, 17 Clinton Street, are dropping their weekday breakfast and lunch service. 

Eater reports: “the two connected restaurants will only open for lunch on Fridays beginning at 11 AM and for brunch on the weekends, starting at 9 AM. The rest of the week it’s dinner only.”

The move is apparently connected to the opening of Frankies on Hudson Street, which is apparently stretching the restaurant’s staff too thin.

“A rep tells Eater that it’s “part of our ongoing quest to improve service and food. Once Hudson street is open, we will be serving breakfast and lunch every day at that location.”

As for the Lower East Side? Sounds like we’re out of luck.


CB3′s SLA February Agenda: Beer at Snack Dragon, Liquor at Momofuku Milk Bar

Community Board 3 is out with its February agenda.  A look at the  SLA Committee docket (cruelly scheduled for Feb. 14th) reveals a few items of note:

  • The Snack Dragon taco shack hopes to get a beer and wine license although it’s within a resolution area.
  • Frankie’s Sputino, 17 Clinton, still looking to expand into the space next door.
