Village Voice's Description

The evening menu is an oddly appealing mix of trendy Southern (fried chicken, biscuits, shrimp and grits) and Southwestern/Latin American (lamb shank with mole, "Baja" salad). For breakfast and lunch, that menu is transformed into one of eggs and sandwiches--many made with the same ingredients you'll find at dinner, like fried chicken on a potato roll, or a crusty loaf filled with smoked trout spread. In the evening, brave the crowds and try to get a table on the spacious second floor, where you can settle in with the generous, though uneven, plates. If you"re looking for a splurge go for one of the Piedmontese steaks, aged to a marvelous, nutty complexity.

Tips from foursquare

  • nymag on 08/26/10

    Check out the latest offering from the Freeman's folks for an accessible, all-day menu of egg dishes like the Yosemite (poached, with succotash), and the inventive “build-a-biscuit” program.

  • nymag on 12/26/10

    The baked goods are the standout here, like the $3 fluffy biscuits, which you can stuff with scrambled eggs and melted pepper-jack cheese. Featured in Where to Eat 2011!

  • Time Out New York on 07/29/11

    Try the fantastic steakhouse-style cheeseburger, built with tangy dry-aged cuts of grass-fed Piedmontese beef, available in the dining room or as a takeaway item from the downstairs lunch counter.

  • AskMen on 09/03/10

    The menu is an upscale American diner concept, with biscuits & sandwiches topped with ingredients like ham & trout, cured & smoked in-house, respectively.

  • Tristan on 09/29/10

    my favorite place in the city. Here's what you need to do. 1) order the shrimp + grits (wow!), 2) order the La Chouffe beer (seasonal and awesome), 3) build a biscuit (bacon + pepperjack). Game over!
