St. Louis: how is Franco these days?
I could not resist: on the Y-98 website, I bought a $50 certficate for Franco for only $15. The certificate is good only Mon - Thurs.
When I go to saucemagazine.com, half of the reviews say that Franco is a primo dining spot, and the other half say it is a dreadful dining spot.
So, how is Franco these days? What should I expect when I go there with my incredibly cheap certificate. (There are still more Franco certificates available on the Y-98 website).
My absolute favorite spot in St. Louis. Consistent, quality and delicious food in an unpretentious environment. Best frites in town. Ate there last week and had the chicken, I know boring, but so hearty and flavorful. Mussels, trout and sefood stew are other favorites. The bread is homemade, they use local ingredients whenever possible and truly passionate about their food and the dining experience. Mon-Thurs - I know Mon is 1/3 off wine and Wednesday sometimes there is music in the bar. Oh - and sweetbreads, not to be missed. I hope you enjoy. I beleive they update their menu on their webiste weekly as well. Happy eating.
