Before Franklin & Company opened it's doors a private dinner was held for a great friend of the restaurant, Rob Weiss. GQ magazine and Basil Hayden's Bourbon approached Mr. Weiss to do an article on him and his work as a television and film producer, screenwriter, actor, and director. Most notable for his film Amongst Friends, his work on Entourage and currently executive producing of the HBO comedy-drama, How to make it in America.
Rob invited a large group of his notable friends and collaborators for a dinner afterwards. Franklin & Company had a chance to test run most of the menu that night and all the food got high praise.
