Down the Alleyway...
In the fall of 2004, Taavo Somer and William Tigertt happened upon a perfect cozy space at the end of an unused alley off the Bowery, and Freemans Restaurant was born.
The idea of the restaurant was to make a rugged clandestine colonial American Tavern.
The cuisine was also imagined to early American: Simple, Rustic, and inspired by Old World traditions.
