Frank Castronovo

Frankies Spuntino 570, NYC; and Frankies Spuntino 457 and Prime Meats, Brooklyn, NY

It was almost a decade ago that “the Franks,” Frank Castronovo and Frank Falcinelli, opened the charming Frankies 457 Spuntino on a sleepy Brooklyn block. They now preside over a collection of restaurants that includes Frankies 570 in the West Village, where chef Ryan Bartlow’s deceptively simple Italian dishes live up to the restaurant group’s considerable buzz.
