Also Italian restaurant Antonioni’s opened a few months ago on the corner of Rivington St and Chrystie St. Antonioni’s  is owned by the same people who run Cafe Gitan.

www.freemansrestaurant.com – End of Freeman Alley ( At Rivington St )

This place is one of the first eateries to start the Gastropub trend that started in New York. Freemans has now become a Downtown LES classic. Which other restaurant in New York City is located at the end of a non-descript dark alley ? ( I think Commerce at Greenwich village is on a unique street but they’re not on an alley ). An absolutely must- order dish is the Artichoke Dip (believe me, it is worth making a trip just to taste this! ) Some of their dishes change by season, but the Beer Braised Pork Shank that I had there last time was soooo yummy -if you see it on the menu Cutie Patroller highly recommends you order it! The atmosphere inside is hip & cool and they are always busy. The space is dim and decorated with dark woods and stuffed taxidermy (eek!) but it has a very vintage feel to it, almost like an English country club in the middle of NYC. Currently, they now have an open upstairs area (^_^).
