A Curbed NOLA reader wrote in, curious about what's going on with this Marigny building at the corner of Dauphine Street and Franklin Avenue. Here's what we know: It's going to be a restaurant called The Franklin and the guys behind 2600 Dauphine, LLC (Patrick Finney and Michael Wilkinson) nabbed the property for $280,000 in 2012. Bockman + Forbes Design have spruced the place up and they happen to be the same cats behind the million dollar renovation at Broussard's Restaurant, the Little Gem Saloon revamp, and the Bouligny Tavern. No word on an opening date or the food specifics, but do tune in to Eater NOLA for those details.
