Delicious Dish at Franklin Cafe

Had the slow roast pork for dinner tonight at the Franklin Cafe and it was one of the tastiest dishes I've had in quite some time. It was so tender, like a mound of moist, shredded pork with a very crispy crust. Delicious. The sticky rib appetizer was excellent also.

    1. Mmm, pork shoulder. That's a really nice dish; had it a couple weeks ago. The Franklin has also served me some of the best tomato salads I've had this summer (Erbaluce did the other ones). Don't know where they're getting them, but they're really good heirlooms, pretty simply done with a little balsamic, EVOO, and a few lumps of bleu.

      1. Last time we were there, we really enjoyed the smokey skillet roasted mussels. I guess they heat a cast iron skillet until screaming hot, add mussels and salt, cover with another screaming hot skillet on top, serve with clarified butter and parsley on top. Great stuff!
