New York Post Takes Aim at the McDonald’s Location in Freeport, Maine
There are some restaurants that just get a little bit more attention than others. And one of those restaurants happens to be located in Freeport, Maine.
That would be the incredibly unique McDonald's location in town. LoveFood recently deemed it as the "most interesting" restaurant in all of Maine. And now, it's getting even more attention from the New York Post.
In a recent New York Post lifestyle article, the paper declared that the Freeport McDonald's is the "poshest" in the world. But before you jump into defense mode, this was an article from a New York publication that had nothing but good things to say about Maine.
The New York Post lavishly praised the Freeport McDonald's for restoring an old farmhouse to match the general feel and vibe of the town. From the furniture to the art hanging on the wall, the author simply couldn't believe it.
As many people know, McDonald's wanted to build one of their modern, signature restaurants in downtown Freeport and were denied by the town. Rather than pack up shop, they purchased a 19th century farmhouse and accidentally created a one-of-a-kind McDonald's that has gained worldwide recognition.
Because McDonald's had to operate under certain town constraints, it's not just the exterior that's different. The interior of the Freeport McDonald's features fireplaces, plush-style booths, and other pieces of old-time decor you'd expect to see in a farmhouse from 1850.
The New York Post gushed over the idea that any McDonald's location could feature a seasonal menu with seafood options. As both locals and visitors know, the Freeport McDonald's is one of only a handful to offer a lobster roll during the summer months.
So bring those defenses down, Maine, some people from New York think we're living large. Even when it's just a quick trip to McDonald's.
