“Food is best when you can really taste the original flavor – when it’s grown in healthy soil, in optimal conditions by people who care. My job is to take that purity and enhance it."

- Chef Frank McClelland

This is Frank.

The award-winning chef Frank McClelland leaves the world of fine dining and white tablecloths to reconnect with his roots and first love; locally sourced, uncomplicated, New England-inspired food. Part bakery and prepared foods, part sit-down-and-relax-dining, FRANK brings a casual yet considered approach to breakfast, lunch and dinner.

FRANK is a long time coming, and truly, my love letter to Essex."
