Expert review of Freemans
With its kitschy décor (think taxidermy), great bar scene and American comfort food this small restaurant is always packed with downtown hipsters.
The old school cocktail list and fun atmosphere trumps the food as far am I concerned but I still like their deviled eggs and delicious salads like bitter greens with shaved egg and bacon vinaigrette.
At night the wood-paneled bar is crammed with fashionable types from all over the city looking for a table but during the day it feels like a neighborhood haunt.
Very uneven - I have had lovely meals with attentive servers and other times rude officious waiters have almost ruined the experience.
Finding this little alley off Rivington Street is part of the fun. The street feels plucked out of London or Paris.
Things can add up quickly despite relatively reasonable entrees.
With the no-reservations policy you’ll want to come at off-peak unless you are prepared to wait.
