While the lights could be a bit dimmer, they clearly show off the pleasant atmosphere and eclectic menu of both Greek and Russian cuisine. (The executive chef and one owner are Russian, the sous chef and other owner Greek.) I highly recommend we support this luscious little ethnic gem. It’s simple, like a good downtown little eatery in Manhattan or Boston, and the prices are incredibly low for the quality. The traditional spinach pie known as spanakopita was as flaky as I have ever had and the authentic lemon, egg soup was beyond delicious. Rumor is the borsht, a traditional Russian beet and cabbage soup, is just as fab. A fresh Greek salad is enough for two, and entrees range between $10.95 and $16.95 and are accompanied by rice or mashed potatoes and fresh veggies.
The food at Franko’s is first-rate.
