Fanelli's Restaurant Review

: Fanelli’s has been open since 1872, long before the area was transformed into a trendy hub full of art galleries and expensive shops. There’s always a lively crowd and a lovely time to be had here. The hamburgers and french fries are terrific, and though nothing else is particularly good, the atmosphere makes up for it. Be sure to take a look at the beautiful glass door.
