The Franklin

You’ll find plenty of reasons to imbibe here, from local bivalves to top-notch brews.

By Catherine Smart

This sister spot to Moxy has a lively bar that’s the perfect place to drink bubbly, beer from a top-notch local list, or a craft cocktail like the Tuh-Kee-Luh Tiger—a Thai-inspired coconut concoction that’s both creamy and refreshing. Sample fresh oysters from the area and order something more substantial, like the dan dan-style dumplings, a house charcuterie board, or their popular fresh-cut fries. The Franklin is the kind of place to lose track of time, one drink and round of nibbles at a time.
