Freemans in the lower East Side is easy to miss, as it's tucked at the end of a cobblestone alley with only small hanging lights to guide you. Once inside, you may think you have mistakenly stepped into a private hunting lodge filled with taxidermed birds, mounted heads, bookshelves, and dark wood cabinets. Freemans specializes in colonial American cuisine with wild game and meat front and center, and produce from local farms. The grilled Eden brook trout is flavored with thyme, garlic, and lemon while the seared filet mignon comes with sweet and sour onions and mashed potatoes in horseradish cream.

Insider Tip:

Many of the cocktails feature small batch whiskies and spirits; the Freemans cocktail, for example, is a mix of rye, lemon juice, pomegranate molasses, and bitters.
