A spuntino is an Italian snack shop, but Frankies goes way beyond that, offering a wonderful wine list and limited series of main courses, too. Rather than looking to Tuscany or Rome for its model, the food pays homage to Brooklyn-Italian culinary history, focusing particularly on the fare of Apulia. Cavatelli-knurled homemade pasta nuggets-come bombarded with Faicco's spicy sausage and fresh sage; the same sausage also appears in a sandwich with broccoli rabe deposited on Sullivan Street Bakery's pizza bianca, and a similar intelligence goes into nearly everything on the menu.

It spread across the ocean like swine influenza, with such startling rapidity that by the '80s, it was de rigueur in every Italian restaurant in the city. Catch a slammin' version at Frankie's.

It can't decide whether it wants to be a sandwich shop, wine bar, or sit-down restaurant--and manages to succeed admirably at all three. Frankies 457 Spuntino is the rare newfangled spot that actually feels like it belongs in its Carroll Gardens neighborhood, where religious shrines commemorate the origin of many immigrants in Apulia, Italy.
