Frank’s sits about 100 feet from the broad, placid Hudson, and as evening gathers, the lights of the Upper West Side of Manhattan start to twinkle, one by one, through the restaurant’s tall windows. Southward, through the windows of a lively piano bar, the Midtown skyline dazzles, and northward there is the spidery expanse of the George Washington Bridge, its towers alight. --The New York Times
