Libertad is a casual, chef-driven neighborhood restaurant featuring Latin American inspired cuisine. <br><br><br /><br />Executive Chef Armando Gonzalez, whose experience includes Chicago"s most notable restaurants, pairs bold and exciting flavors for a seasonal menu of small plates ideal for sharing and experiencing the diverse mosaic of the countries that make up Latin America.<br /><br><br><br />Noted mixologist Adam Seger has put together a fun and creative cocktail menu while Sommelier Shebnem Ince compiled a succinct wine list that complements the menu with by the glass and bottle selections.<br /><br><br><br />You'll quickly find that Libertad personifies the true neighborhood restaurant - a place you want and can dine at all the time because it's welcoming, relaxing and offers a menu so good it's hard to choose. The answer to that dilemma? Visit often.

"First, it was nearly impossible to hear my boyfriend talk throughout dinner, so we spent most of the evening shouting at each other. This place could really benefit from some acoustic features. I think this restaurant takes some good risks with their cuisine, however, they should note when dishes are especially spicy. Their stuffed pepper was spicy for me, someone who loves LOVES spicy, hot food, but my boyfriend could hardly touch it. It would have been nice for them to bring out all our small dishes at once or close together so we could enjoy them more or less together, but instead they came out in solitude and it felt like a little too much of a single dish. The cocktails were alright, but they did not knock our socks off for the price."
