It was a dark and stormy night…

Seriously, it was cold, slippy and dark out.

Even with the snow and slippy Pittsburgh roads we took our maiden trip to Franktuary in Lawerenceville. It was odd that they built a new building considering the spaces available in the neighborhood but they did an excellent job with it. The church pew seating, vintage lights and the snazzy garage doors for summer make it a place to hang out.

We sat at the bar for dinner…(yes, flat bar stools but oh well)

  • Garbanzo fries with Tahini Lemon dip (excellent)
  • A Standard hotdog with Cheddar sauce on a Millet roll
  • The Chicago Impostor (no tomato) with the Underdog – a New-Zealand grass fed beef dog
  • The Poutine Quebecois

At the bar we had the:

  • Church Wine Punch (very good since it was so cold out)
  • the Ginzer (awesome) Wigle Ginever, lime cordial, red pepper, Sriracha
  • and the Flying Nun (OK) Plymouth gin, St Germain, grape-fruit, egg white

Everything was served in normal human sized amounts (food and drinks)…you only want an enormous amount of fries at one place in Pittsburgh. I did find it to be a tad on the pricey side considering it was hotdogs but that seems to be a trend here in Pittsburgh.
All in all a good place for a Friday night.
