Owner Of Popular Freedom Restaurant Shines On National Talk Show
Anyone who considers themselves a "foodie" probably knows about the internationally known Lost Kitchen restaurant. The Freedom, Maine eater is probably best known for only accepting reservations via post card,
Owner / Chef Erin French has created an amazing demand for her food.
Earlier this week, she appeared on Drew Barrymore's nationally syndicated talk show.
During the segment, she had a chance to tell the story of how she came to own one of the hottest restaurants in the northeast. Which is, given the fact that it is located in a town of 700, is pretty wild.
The path she took was not an easy one. She explained that she went to college, but had to drop out after becoming pregnant with her son. She explained that she started her culinary career by hosting a supper club. Later, she opened a restaurant, but sadly had issues with alcohol and prescription medication addiction. In the end, she lost her restaurant and her marriage folded. But, through those tragedies, she persevered and went on to open the Lost Kitchen.
In the interview, she explained that it was the popularity of the restaurant that led to them accepting reservation through postcard. Apparently, the place was so busy that they realized they needed to just slow everything down a bit. French explained that she is "old fashioned" and thought that accepting reservation in the form of postcards would be the best way to do that.
