Freemans Restaurant Online Press Kit
Welcome to online press kit for Freemans Restaurant.
Co-founded by Taavo Somer and William Tigertt, Freemans Restaurant came to life unexpectedly when the two discovered the forlorn alleyway as a potential location or a Halloween party in 2003. “The building was moody and brooding and gothic, like an Edgar Allan Poe story,” recalls Somer. “The space was singular—I knew right away that I wanted to open a restaurant there.”
With that, the two ditched their party plans, and set the wheels in motion to open a restaurant driven by the diner’s experience from start to finish. 15 years later, Freemans Restaurant has served as a model for reshaping New York’s culinary landscape from the unwavering use of local, seasonal ingredients to its immersive, singular dining experience.
Inspired by the American colonial tavern, Freemans serves up a selection of warm and traditional dishes that pair well with their surroundings. Standout favorites include locally sourced Eden Brook Trout, Bone-in Ribeye Tomahawk Steaks, and the eatery’s signature five-cheese macaroni. Under the direction of Executive Chef Harold Villarosa, the rotating rustic American menu takes on a new form every season and pays close attention to local ingredients.
