Frank’s Makes a Confident Nod to American-Italian Classics

Taking note from nostalgic Italian-influenced American cuisine from downtown New York City. Frank’s aims to reflect this roaring era, bringing it to the doorstep of Hong Kong’s party scene Wyndham Street. We dropped by to try a few of the classics which have made it on this now frequented hotspot.

Party location


Perched on the infamous Wyndham Street which houses a number of well-loved bars, Frank’s instantly became a hit with the post-work crowds, and it’s remained so since its debut back in 2018. The restaurant and bar spans over two floors—the lower for drinks and the upper for dining. One can of course also opt to eat downstairs when it’s not too busy—that’s what we did, with pecking dishes.

Bar snacks


First, we tried the Tomato and Garlic Bar Pie, essentially a pizza. The tomato was generously smothered over the fresh crust topped with an indulgent dollop of mozzarella. This dish was lacking in toppings, however, which is something I prefer with pizza dishes—although some are content with just the basics.

We were told that Suppi at Frank’s are an absolute delight and are well made by the chefs. The Italian street food snack is often found in Rome and Sicily, comprising a crispy deep fried ball filled with ragu or pasta. We tried the Veal Bolognese which, unsurprisingly, hit the spot with its crunchy texture filled with soft and tender meat.

Next we tried another staple from the menu—Frank’s Meatballs, made with a secret recipe. We loved how juicy and moist the dish was, topped with a delightful sprinkle of cheese.

There’s one thing to really take away from a seating at Frank’s bar section—the bread. Fresh and crisp to the touch, each piece is hollow inside for an airy bite unique to many other breads. We had an unregretful top-up of this one.

Frank’s is full to the brim pretty much every night (before COVID times)—and with good reason. The buzzing bar and restaurant make an inviting abode for friends and colleagues to merge in a casual space, with drinks to liven it up. The snacking dishes are a must for pre-dinner munchies.
