Restaurant to accept postcards for chance at a reservation

FREEDOM, Maine — A popular, nationally acclaimed restaurant in small-town Maine is asking potential diners to participate in a postcard lottery to get a reservation.

The Portland Press Herald reports The Lost Kitchen in Freedom will accept postcards for its 2018 reservation requests. Word of mouth, magazine mentions and a video that got 2 million views put the 40-seat restaurant in Freedom on the map.

Owner Erin French says the restaurant reflects an "old fashioned" Maine style. It will accept reservations April 1-10 for May to October seating, and French says she and her staff will hold a drawing until all seats are claimed.

She says the restaurant received 10,000 phone calls in 24 hours from eager prospective diners last year.
