Chef Jack Neal and his wife, Jennifer, opened Franny’s in late 2018 in a space that had long been occupied by the slightly chefier Francine’s Bistro (see what they did there?). Though it bills itself as a neighborhood place more than a destination, Franny’s is a worthy successor and French-inflected like its predecessor: steak frites, duck confit, roast poussin, and other homey Continental standards. The setting is intimate, with all of 50 seats inside, some of them shared church pews, and a small, plant-ringed patio. In 2020, Franny’s also expanded outdoor seating into the small yard, and I hope it sticks around.
