Franklin Southie is part of a small group of eateries owned by the Franklin Restaurant Group, including Franklin Café in the South End; Franklin Cape Ann in Gloucester; as well as Citizen Public House & Bar and Tasty Burger, both in the Fenway area. Like the others, Franklin Southie offers a welcoming neighborhood vibe, serving American fare using top notch ingredients, and pouring creative cocktails and great, often local craft beer. This is a go-to spot for when you’re craving fried chicken, mashed potatoes and other homey dishes, with the added bonus of a late-night kitchen that serves until 1:30 a.m. That’s a rarity in this town. Sunday brunch has some wacky offerings, like fried PB&J and Boston crème pie doughnut holes, but standards like huevos rancheros and steak and eggs keep locals coming in, as do the delicious Bloody Marys and Bellinis.
