In a series of clips in Stories at the newly created @frankiesgrocery on Instagram, Prisinzano unveiled some of the plans.... starting with that he might not actually call it Frankie's Grocery.
"I'm still conceptualizing everything," he said.
Lil' Frankie's on First Avenue between First Street and Second Street.
"I've always wanted to have a grocery store. I've always wanted to curate all my own products," said Prisinzano, who also owns and operates EV mainstays Frank on Second Avenue and Supper on Second Street. "It will be a curated list of products that I use and recommend. Nothing will be on the shelves that I don't personally love."
He plans on having a deli case inside the new shop to sell sandwiches ... with a vertical slicer for prosciutto. He's also thinking about offering homemade gelato and sorbet — similar to what his restaurants have on the dessert menus. Other amenities will include a 20-foot table to host private parties catered by the shop.
"I'm going to keep it real simple, real Italian and real fresh," he said.
