At the end of an alley in the Lower East Side, there’s a restaurant called Freemans that’s more of a time capsule than a typical New York venue. Freemans, a restaurant whose aesthetic is inspired by the colonial American tavern, aims to be a place where the founding fathers would have gathered and made plans. Everything from the Old World cuisine, to the bourbon and rye served in the proper glassware, brings you to a different time period – a surefire sign of a successful aesthetic. Freemans attention to detail is remarkable; even the cocktails are born out of a specific code thats purpose is to bring back the art of a truly great drink. Boutique wines are bought from small producers in order to achieve an Old World style specialty wine list. Check out our picks, and click to shop the aesthetic.
