The space, in a back alley, has no direct access door and is poorly equipped to be a restaurant from just about any perspective; it seemed to set its aspiring restaurateurs up for near-immediate failure. Yet 10 years have gone by and those two kids still have their lunch counter in the back of Trinity Cathedral as well as a food truck and a larger bar and restaurant...

Get To Know Us: Tronny, the Craft-O-Tron Machine

It seems fitting on Independence Day to feature a conversation with our resident Craft-O-Tron machine, Tronny, who sits at the front of the restaurant and features fabulous $5 handmade crafts from local, independent artists.  Tronny has been with us for well over a month now and has become part of the Franktuary family.  His friend and keeper Lynne keeps him stocked with a variety of whimsical and useful items, and promptly answers any phone calls if your $5 bill gets stuck.  At the moment you can purchase a ring featuring a tiny platter...
