Dining at Freedman’s is like eating at your Jewish grandmother’s house, except Bubbe has upped her food game and is throwing a dinner party for Eastside hipsters. The chopped liver is a mousse with figs and hazelnuts. The latkes are shaped like Belgian waffles. And the to-die-for glazed brisket is cut tableside with an electric knife by a heavily tatted and mustachioed man.
Freedman’s has a fun bubbe chic vibe with spectacular vintage wallpaper and olde tyme light fixtures. An impressively stocked bar serves cocktails named “Deli Calling” (Future Gin, Orange Liqueur, Yellow Mustard, Lemon, Cel-Ray and Herbs) and “Full Sour” (Aquavit, Dry Vermouth and Pickle Brine). To end your meal, the traditional black and white deli cookie has been reimagined with fudge and toasted marshmallow. It will have you kvelling!
Freedman’s is located at 2619 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles (in Silver Lake).
