As the sign out front proclaims, everyone is welcome at Franky and Johnny's Seafood Outlet, which is now open in Elysian Valley.
This welcome addition to the neighborhood is meeting its goal of being the "seafood lover's value paradise," providing high quality seafood at wholesale prices. In addition to fresh and frozen seafood, the store also sells grab-n-go lunches with sandwiches and sushi starting around just $3.
Visitors with a little more time can also buy a fresh fish lunch that is grilled-to-order. The Mexican sea bass or red snapper is marinated in a special Italian dressing that co-owner Johnny helped develop to complement seafood.
Franky and Johnny's is located at 1633 Riverside Drive (at Eads), a site that sat vacant for most of the last 20 years. It's great to have such a wonderful and delicious new neighbor here!
