Read about Freeman's on social media, and went for a walk to find the alley. It is really a unique hidden gem. Great black bean veggie burger, and also roast beef sandwich. Great atmosphere !

Freemans makes food to order. While it's unlikely to have gluten-free bread, I think the cooks will try to accommodate dietary needs.

Located in Lower East Side of Manhattan Freemans offers a rugged and clandestine respite in a Colonial American Tavern setting. The cuisine is early American: simple, rustic and inspired by Old World traditions. Freemans is well known for beautiful artisanal cocktails and warm service.
