It's way too late for a weekend rundown (heck, last night's post was already about this coming weekend), but last weekend came and went with a number of notable new additions to Franklin, and they seem worth mentioning. If, like ILFA, you're the kind of person who likes chatting about all things local, including changes like these, come on out tomorrow night for a mid-week beer at Washington Commons with the fine folks from Brooklynian. I can guarantee the conversation will be lively.
Some cannon fodder for the conversation (it's finals time in ILFA's world, so I'll have to miss out):
- Two local bars unveiled their food offerings this weekend, with Black Tree Sandwiches setting up shop in the tiny kitchen at the back of The Crown Inn and 739 Franklin launching their menu as well. While I haven't had the chance to sample the wares at 739 yet, the grilled cheese from Black Tree was very tasty indeed (and came with a healthy portion of chips).
- Excelsior Cycles is open - anybody been inside yet?
- Work on the new restaurant in the former Franklin Roadhouse is coming right along, while the former Slice of Brooklyn is undergoing a mild renovation in order to reopen as Roscoe's, a new slice pizza place.
