Frank’s Restaurant is under new management – as of October 1, says the sign. They are advertising extended late night hours.
Frank’s is well known as “the fortified high point of Ann Arbor”, according to its menus.
I wrote about Frank’s 6 years ago as part of a review of Placeshout, which was a simple application for taking short (100 character) notes on locations. That was from the era of the Ann Arbor “nova mob”, a cadre of people who could be counted on to use any new social or review site and instantly propel Ann Arbor to the top of the list for cities reviewed, second usually only to San Francisco. Placeshout is gone (without even a goodbye message), and the nova mob has scattered to the winds. But Frank’s is still here, and good luck to its new management.
