We've been writing about Franny's since 2004, when the Park Slope pizzeria first opened its doors. In the years since, the pie shop has grown into a Brooklyn institution. Now, owners Francine Stephens and Andrew Feinberg are simultaneously relocating Franny's and opening a new, non-pizza restaurant in its place.
