Franny’s is a Park Slope gem dedicated to making delicious, artisanal pizza. With a charming outdoor garden open in Spring and Summer, and a reasonably priced variety of delicious pies, Franny’s is the perfect pizza go-to.

“[My ideal food day includes] a breezy lunch in the backyard at Franny’s in Park Slope.” – Chris Santos (Judge, Chopped)

“For dinner, I live in Brooklyn, so nine times out of ten we end up back there. Franny’s is huge for us. Their menu changes constantly. Primarily it’s a pizza place, but we actually never eat the pizza. If you list the ingredients, it’s so refreshingly minimal – to me it’s the most perfect food. They cure their own meats, they do everything themselves, and they work with specific farmers very closely. I feel like they’re a cut above everyone else somehow.” – Pilar Guzman (Editor-in-Chief, Condé Nast Traveler)
