A little about us & the culture that has been created… Friedmans is a family run business, which operates locations throughout New York City. Friedmans was named after the famous economist Milton Friedman who popularized the phrase, “there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch”. This phrase has gone on to be used in science, economics, finance, statistics, technology, sports, & now food. However, to put it simply, “to get one thing we like, we usually have to give up another thing we like.” Our mantra is simple, “Eat good food” and this is what we strive to deliver to our guests. For us, it has two meanings. Firstly, eat food that tastes good. Secondly, be proud of the food you serve. We know where our food comes from. We communicate regularly with our farmers and are proud to serve antibiotic free meats & local vegetables. Our mission is for you to love, respect, & enjoy, not only the food you serve, but also the team you work with.

    We ordered the strip steak rare, which did not disappoint. Steak was flavorful and easy to chew. Also ordered the sesame salmon salad and it was delicious. High recommend these two dishes

    Since our first visit was 98 degree day...we were surprised at how warm the restaurant was but the atmospher was great. Our server, Sam was caring, knowledgeable and very professional. The watermelon gazpacho was so refreshing and delicious. My husband is a Texan and he tried my soup and ate half of it. LOL. We also shared the Brick Chicken and it was absolutely outstanding. All we kept saying was that we couldn't believe we went out to eat and ordered "chicken" since we eat that a lot at home. However, this dish was superb...crispy, tasty and the gravy was light and perfect! Our dessert, the chocolate Babka was warmed and the ribbons of chocolate became smooth and creamy like a fudge ripple; served with whipped cream. Ah! delicious.

    Was informed that we can choose our outdoor seating options upon arrival. We were then asked to move to accommodate a reservation for a large group.

    I had a lovely dinner with my daughter. My salmon salad was very tasty; I liked the sauce the salmon was marinated in. The combination of the beets and lettuce was very good. Our waitress was very friendly and professional. Our outdoor table was great for dog and people watching.

    Friendly staff and great food. We really enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere. We had our 3y old with us and the kitchen even made a special request for him (he’s picky!) They also very happily accommodated my husband’s dairy allergy; our server knew exactly what he could and could not have. Great little spot!

    Our party got the reuben, brick chicken and grilled chicken swisswich. We were all pleased with our meals. It is our second time visiting, and we have loved Friedman's each time. Delicious food and awesome service. We are planning to return on our next trip to NYC. We had the same server for both visits, and he is fantastic.
