Profile

Frank Falcinelli and Frank Castronovo's West Village restaurant is an ideal place for a low-key, affordable, weeknight dinnerónot unlike its sister restaurant in Carroll Gardens. It can even be healthy, if you want it to be. Making the most of its prime Hudson Street location, big floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the neighborhood, and in the warmer months, you can sit outside. It's also nice to sit at the spacious bar, which is good to keep in mind if the hostess quotes you an hour wait time (typical, even on a Tuesday). The food's not super innovative or fussy, but it's consistent and very good. Skip the heavy crostinis in favor of ordering a few vegetable antipasti dishes for the table: They range from the simple, light-roasted sweet potatoes to buttery hot pine-nut polenta. The must-order pasta here is the sweet-potato-and-sage ravioli in umami-rich Parmesan broth. It's almost like eating a sweet version of the lightest wonton soup. The airy pasta pairs perfectly with grilled seafood, and for $18, you get a big portion of perfectly grilled octopus. Frankies 570's is all about comfort, but the food isn't too heavy: Eggplant Parmesan is lightly battered with eggs and isn't too greasy. Sure, there are more refined, elegant Italian restaurants in the neighborhood, but in terms of bang for your buck, Frankies 570 is hard to top.
