www.frankieandjohnnies.com Frankie and Johnnie’s Steakhouse began as a speakeasy in New York City in 1926. Legend has it that to gain access to the original speakeasy patrons knocked on the unmarked door and used the password “Frankie” when a small peephole was opened. If it was business as usual, a confirmation reply of “Johnnie” was heard and admittance was gained. Hence, the Frankie & Johnnie moniker. Following the repeal of prohibition the restaurant became a steakhouse and an institution famous for steaks and chops.
