I’m very big on brunch; it’s my favorite meal of the week. I am also fortunate enough to have friends who feel the same way and are more than willing to meet up and help me indulge in my addiction. Lately, we’ve been trying to expand our culinary horizons a bit and deviate from our tried and true favorites. This past weekend, we tried out Liberty Bar & Restaurant.
Located in Midtown, I was a little worried about parking, since space is always at a premium, but Liberty is located near Joe Mama’s and Lucky Goat, which have a decent amount of parking. The added bonus was if there weren’t any tables we’d have other food options. 😉
Luckily, we got there shortly after they opened and were seated right away. We did note on our way out, however, that both the indoor and outdoor tables were almost all gone.
The food was really good; we left wishing we’d opted for stretchier pants. Our waitress was very sweet, and she made sure that we understood the menu and was willing to make accommodations for any dietary restrictions.
All in all, I would absolutely come back. I wouldn’t recommend it for larger groups; they have signs posted saying they can not accommodate groups larger than twelve, plus it also is a little dark and pretty loud, which is not always optimal for interacting with the rest of your group. The only other negative I’d add was that some of the staff seemed to have an issue with me taking pictures. No one told me to stop, but I felt the dirty looks from the bar staff were unwarranted since 1 – let’s be honest, we live in an Instagram world, 2 – my camera was never directed at any people, and 3 – most places encourage social media shout outs and online reviews. Oh well, maybe I just caught them on an off day, and it wasn’t bad enough to keep me from wanting to go back.
