Frankie & Johnny's Restaurant Review

: Dating to World War II, Frankie & Johnny’s has drawn generations of New Orleanians who flocked to the place for boiled crawfish, fried seafood and overstuffed po’ boys. The menu is strictly New Orleans, featuring red beans and rice, Italian-style pasta dishes, sloppy roast beef sandwiches and respectable fried chicken. The wine list oscillates between nondescript "house" generic wines and big-name selections (The Prisoner). Service is inconsistent, at best. Outdoor seating and a playroom for kids were added as part of a full renovation.
