A walk by Frankies 17 Clinton Street earlier this morning turned up this “closed until further notice” sign in the window. But fear not: “closed until further notice” isn’t as ominous as it seems, and “construction on Houston St.” isn’t some sort of euphemism. According to one of the restaurant’s staff, road construction has forced the city to temporarily turn off the water on Frankies’ side of Clinton Street. The place should reopen this afternoon, and then be closed again at some point next week.
