In my line of work i have to travel all over NY, and all of the wonderful gourmet shops around. I've noticed that many products that Zabar's or Dean and Deluca carry are all at Frank's. They are medium priced but what do you expect? you are getting grade A products that vary from meats to produce to great cheeses they even have bread and pastries that bake every 15 minutes, on my way to work i always grab a chocolate croissant! The atmosphere is great! The store also caters, they recently catered for one of our neighborhood building parties and it was excellent, they really know what they are doing. In addition to that they are also very charitable, each year they give out pumpkins, and always help out the church and surrounding schools. Overall, the store is great, and whoever disagrees with me is seriously disturbed! I know good quality food and this is it people!
We might be in the "hood" but many would like to change that reputation. This is a store that helps change the neighborhood to a family oriented pleasant place to live.
