East Village’s Frank and the Smith Plan New Restaurants


Two East Village operators are making power moves today: EV Grieve brings word that Frank Prisinzano of Frank, Lil’ Frankies, and Supper is behind an “inexpensive eco-friendly Italian restaurant” (so says the liquor license application notification) coming to the former Graceland market space at 150 East Second Street.

Meanwhile, Eater notices that according to Community Board 6’s agenda, the owners of the Smith are going after 956 Second Avenue, between 50th and 51st Street. That location is near the newly relocated Crave, which has been closed since a crane collapse two years ago.
