Friedman’s to Open Grand Street Eatery Later this Month
Another dining option is one small step from opening in Seward Park.
Word on the street is that Friedman’s, the comfort food, is to open its newest location sometime within the next month. Still no word on an exact launch, though.
Meanwhile, the restaurant installed its canopy signage at 357 Grand this week. In addition, obligatory “coming soon” posters hang in the windows, and solicit the community for prospective employees.
This Lower East Side location will sport eleven tables and 40 seats inside, plus a rear yard with four tables that is open from 8:00am to 10:00pm daily. Liquor license pending.
Friedman’s is a misnomer of sorts. With the sound of a classic family luncheonette, these locales aren’t so much. The joint was actually named for famous economist Milton Friedman, who popularized the phrase, “there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.” Phillips founded the first eatery eleven years ago in the Chelsea Market. It made front-page news in 2017, after taking over the famous Cafe Edison in Times Square.
