Brooklyn Nibbles: Frankies 457 Court St. Expansion Still Under Cover

September 17th, 2008 · 5 Comments

We do know there is work going on at Frankies 457 on Court Street on the major expansion that will make it easier to get a table at one of the more popular Italian restaurants in South Brooklyn. What we don’t know is when the work will be completed. In any case, a Special GL Correspondent had a look and returned with these photos updating the situation.

    I know what it is, but I don’t know the opening date. It’s going to be awesome and worth the wait!

    Maybe when it’s bigger, they can start being nicer

    They will not be nicer, just become more arrogant and entitled. The real Italian food diners know where to go to get a good meal. Frankie’s is lame, rude, intrusive to the neighborhood, Not even from NY State, and only exists to keep the new-comers to Brooklyn satiated with mediocre food. Does no one else know how loud their backyard dining area is to their neighbors, and how often they open & close their rusty, squeaky gate no less than 10 times a night after midnight – AND the volume of staff as they haul out all of the wine, beer and whatever else glass bottles – again AFTER midnight? Not to mention the noise of their contracted garbage trucks that arrive at 2am and wakes everyone up. The shock is going to be the price that they will have to fork over in new lease expenses for not getting prior approval from building owners before beginning their expansion. And all of the fines they will be served with for walking food through two residential gardens to the lame new comers to the area. This is a sad state of affairs in south brooklyn – no one is originally from here any longer and it should be called little tribeca and this pathetic point.
