The Frankie & Benny Story
Frankie Giuliani was 10 years old when, withhis Mamma and Poppa, he left Sicily and landed at Ellis Island, New York in 1924. They moved inwith relatives in Brooklyn’s “Little Italy”, apredominately Italian neighbourhood. Poppa soonfound work, but from the home country he’d broughta little money and a lot of ambition.
It was no surprise then, when the family opened arestaurant within a year, everybody helping with thebuilding and the cooking in equal measure. Each ofthem had a favourite dish to contribute, but it wasMamma’s home-style cooking that was the base fromwhich the business prospered.
Frankie went to the nearby High School andbecame lifetime friends with Benny, already a thirdgeneration American. In 1953 Poppa retired andFrankie and Benny took over the business, combiningthe best of popular American food with traditionalItalian dishes.
The rest, as they say, is history.
