Frank's Restaurant Is No More

Frank's Restaurant, a Meatpacking District institution which has been house is Chelsea Market since 2005, has shut its doors, Eater reports.

Yuppies passing by on their way to buying brownies or wicker baskets wouldn't know it, but Frank's has been around since 1912, when no one without a big white apron and a couple of fat, meaty hands would even venture near the area. It used to be at 10th Avenue and 15th Street, where it mainly served the workers in the area. The place was run by a whole bunch of Molinaris, including Chris, Steve and James.

To be, ahem, Frank, I haven't heard many good things about the place and its food lately, but one hates to see 95 years of New York history go down the drain.
