A cozy wine bar with a wide selection of reasonably priced wines. They have great light (not lite) fare; French sandwiches and quiche and a fantastic charcuterie plate.

Great place for breakfast during the week (or on weekends if you don't mind waiting for a while). The halumi eggs or the eggs benedict are always good choices. They also have fantastic cappaccinos. Dinner is also tasty here as well; the homemade mergez and any of their tangines with couscous are excellent.

We have had diner at this new restaurant in our neighborhood twice and we have had amazing food both times. The atmosphere is pleasant and the service is great. But really, it's the food that makes us want to eat there all the time. Yum.

Our favorite sushi restaurant. Although it looks pretty rough and ugly on the outside and the atmosphere inside is sorta lacking, every meal we've ever had there has been crazy good. The sushi is alway extremely fresh and delicious. And order the broiled squid in ginger sauce to start.

End of Freemans Alley
(Cross Street: Rivington Street, between Bowery and Chrystie Street)
New York, NY 10002
(212) 420-0012
Directions: F, V at 2nd Ave

The unusual location would be enough to make a trip to Freemans worth it but they back it up with some of the best food we've had on a regular basis in the city. If you go, you MUST order the artichoke dip. Reservations only for parties 6 or more.

Great old-fashioned cocktails at the bar (there are two, one in front and a second in the back room).

Also check out their off-shoot retail store, Freemans Sporting Club, with men's bespoke clothing and barbershop, located at the entrance to the alley.
