Upmarket hot dog restaurant Frank reopens in the Warehouse District

Frank restaurant (407 Colorado St.) sat dark for two weeks after the state closed the restaurant for unpaid taxes, but the restaurant reopened Friday night at 7 p.m. Owners said they were able to raise the funds that allowed them to get compliant with their tax debt. Frank served a full menu all weekend, including Sunday brunch.

“We had great support from the community this weekend and are super thankful for that,” co-owner Geoff Peveto said. “We have an amazing staff, and it all came together.”

When Frank shuttered on February 1, ownership mentioned the burden of the San Antonio shop, which was closed earlier this year after not meeting expectations.
