Shine On, Brooklyn

We’re always happy to see a neighborhood joint do well, especially since our neighborhood is in Brooklyn, a borough sometimes overshadowed by that other one across the river.

So, imagine our delight when we heard Frankies Sputino, a restaurant a mere ten blocks from EarlyWord HQ, featured on NPR’s All Things Considered ? Like many of you, we first learned about the eatery from that font of all things worth knowing, Michael Rockliff, Workman’s head of library marketing (get a sample of his newsletter here).

As a result of the feature, the restaurant’s cookbook rose to #82 on Amazon sales rankings (from #2,453 yesterday).
