Franklin and Co. tends to get lost in the frantic shuffle of Franklin Village, but this neighborhood tavern is a solid spot grab a bite to eat and some drinks before seeing your friends improv show at UCB next door. The food is good (they have a giant pretzel to share), there are TVs on the wall, and there’s a crazy selection of whiskey if that’s where the night seems to be headed.

One of the more impressive restaurants in the city, 71Above still lacks enough reasons to go there.
Faith & Flower
