Fran’s Restaurant in the Power & Light has closed

  • Fran’s turned off the neon.

The poutine has left the building. Just a month after its third anniversary, Fran’s Restaurant (11 E. 14th St.) has closed in the Power & Light District.

The 24-hour diner, an import from Canada, opened in October 2009. The decor was mod, and the food was Canadian comfort: cheese curds and gravy over fries and sausage, biscuits and gravy. Regulars to the P&L District likely ended up there for a late-night breakfast or two. This was the first location in the United States for the 72-year-old chain.
