Erin French's famed restaurant, The Lost Kitchen, in Freedom, will open for the new season in a matter of days. Since opening in 2014 the 40-seat restaurant at the site of an old mill has become so popular that French conducts a mail-in lottery for reservations. This year's is already over. She received 20,000 post cards. Only 1,000 will be chosen. French came by Maine Public's Portland studios recently for a chat with Morning Edition host Irwin Gratz.
