Fodor's Review

It's hard to believe now, but there was once a time when New York restaurant interiors were trying hard not to look cool, with no taxidermy or ironic tchotchkes littered around the room, or lodge-ish dishes like hunters stew, potted pork, and grilled trout on the menu. But we have Freemans to thank for the change, and their equally inspired cocktails menu. Down a little-used alleyway on the Lower East Side, trendsetting Freemans is as hip and popular as when it opened in 2004. Just don't try too hard to look cool.
