About

The Franklin, as it is affectionately called by locals, is a quintessential neighborhood restaurant in the South End. With a reputation for being an industry destination, the Franklin serves a full menu every night until 1:30 AM. Putting a fresh twist on modern American cuisine, we pair our menu with craft cocktails, world-class wines, and local microbrews. Since opening in 1996, Franklin Cafe has enjoyed national and international recognition, from The New York Times and Food & Wine, to the London Sunday Telegraph. In addition to the original South End restaurant, The Franklin Cape Ann is a second outpost in Gloucester, MA, one of America’s oldest working fishing ports.
