4. Franky & Johnny’s
This beloved Uptown neighborhood institution shut down in February due to a number of problems, not the least of which was a very publicized sanitation issue. Nine months later, with new ownership and a gleamingly rebuilt, ultra-clean space, F&J’s is back in action, and thank goodness for that, because if anyone in town know’s the mystical art of deep frying well, it’s these folks. Many come for the fried seafood, but their chicken is seriously serious.
