view web site ›'s insider take:

Frankie Falcinelli and Frankie Castronovo, owners of Frankies 457 Spuntino, expanded their Court Street empire in March 2009 by opening Prime Meats a few doors down from their flagship restaurant. The old-timey decor of tin ceilings, battered mirrors, and Edison bulbs has a similar aesthetic to the Frankies' other Italian restaurants (they own Frankies 17 in Manhattan as well), but the locavore menu takes a Germanic turn. House specials include spaetzle, bratwurst with sauerkraut, and pretzels made with malt flour; we recommend the banging Black Angus burger. There are no seats at the antique bar, but you can pass the hour wait for a table there, sipping artfully crafted cocktails like the Aviation (gin, Maraschino liqueur, and crème de violette). The service at Prime Meats is a lot friendlier than the sometimes icy treatment at Frankies 457. Here, the servers even manage to make their inability to have everyone's dishes arrive at the same time seem charming.—Danielle Contray

Open Mondays through Wednesdays 7 am to 1 am, Thursdays 7 am to 2 am, Fridays 7 am to 1 pm and 3 pm to 2 am, Saturdays 7am to 3 am, and Sundays 7 am to 1 am.
