Frankie’s Bohemian Eco-Kitchen?

rworange | Oct 16, 201106:25 PM

I got a little pre-occupied with mention of Frankie’s Bohemian Cafe in the recent bargain bites list and did a bit of googling on it.

I found this article from Sept 2010 that there was supposed to be a change by the end of Sept 2010 by owner (?) Josef Rusnak.

"Now, 12 years after selling Frankie’s to return to Europe, he is back and ready to make change inspired by his time away. The updated restaurant, slated to debut after a mid-month makeover, will feature wine on tap, all-organic produce and new European entrees near the $10 mark"

I mean ... man ... if you read the rest of the article some of those changes would have been astounding with organic meat, wine and produce from Rusnak's farm. He was also going to add Hungarian dishes and make the brambory authentic Czech ... you gotta guess carnitas brambory wasn't all that authentic.

“Before, I didn’t think Americans wanted an authentic brambory,” says Rusnak, “but now I feel differently.” The current incarnation is a bit like a large zucchini and potato pancake, with toppings that include cheese, meat and vegetables. “We’ll do it Czech style now, with organic pork and sauerkraut,”

Nice discussion on the Home Cooking board about authentic Czech bramboráky

From yelp reviews it appears there wasn't any change. Anyone know what happened or if something might still be in the works?
