Frankies Get Their Time in the Nightline Spotlight
The Frankies have gotten the Nightline treatment, appearing as the subject of a short profile on last night's show. In between overbearing snippets of Italian opera, Franks Falcinelli and Castronovo demonstrate how to make a tomato and avocado salad ("Very simple, very fresh, there you have it") and summer linguine with clams, and talk about polishing and honing their craft until they're "touching people." Also, both of them have fathers named Frank; as Castronovo says, "You can't swing a dead cat without hitting a Frank in Brooklyn!"
