Episode Notes

Frank Castronovo and Frank Falcinelli (aka "The Franks") have been operating a collection of restaurants in Brooklyn, NY, for many years now, starting with their Frankies Spuntino and including past classics such as Prime Meats and current joints like Frank's Wine Bar, Frankies Pantry & Bottle Shop, and F & F Pizzeria, all on the same block in Carroll Gardens. The Franks are also participating in S.Pellegrino's (our promotional partner) inaugural Destination Dining series, in which pairs of restaurants on the East and West Coasts exchange dishes for one week each.
