The highly original concept of Franklin is not lost on me, considering the location of this restaurant is situated on a corner directly across the street from Parque Roosevelt in San Isidro. The restaurant pays tribute to the mid-century (more or less 1940’s and 1950’s), but especially to Franklin Delano Roosevelt (the popular 32nd president of the United States), his wife Eleanor (who was a force in her own right) and Fala (their adorable Scottish Terrier). There are references to these three all over the restaurant….from the names of cocktails and food dishes, to the napkins to the black and white quirky wallpaper in the bathrooms that shows quotes of both FDR and Eleanor and other fun facts.
Besides the fantastic food we sampled the day of our visit, we also imbibed in some wonderful original cocktails. Diego Macedo was instrumental in creating the specialty house cocktails at Franklin. The bar at Franklin is well equipped with a wide variety of fine quality liquors and exclusive varieties as well. We sampled three of their house specialty cocktails, each one uniquely different from the other.
