8. Freemans Restaurant

Freemans Alley_New York City_Speakeasy_Lower East Side

Hidden down a Freeman’s Alley in the Lower East Side, this restaurant sports a hunting lodge type atmosphere, styled as a  “rugged clandestine American tavern,” according to the restaurant. With a very meat based menu, the hit menu item is a hot artichoke with crispy bread. Of the restaurants on the list, this is indeed one of the more hidden and lesser known.
