Best Place to Sip Wine Before Dinner - 2001
Liberty Cafe - CLOSED
In a city that has thousands of excellent restaurants, one might wonder why anyone would choose to visit the Liberty Cafe, a restaurant that practically ensures a wait on weekend nights because it is limited to 12 tables and doesn't take reservations. The secret behind Liberty Cafe's popularity may lie down a narrow breezeway that leads to the rear of the restaurant. There you will find a little guest house cheerfully painted white, a cottage that serves as a bakery during the day but on weekend evenings is transformed into a wine bar. Waiting for a table has never been so pleasant, with a selection of fine wines and delicious appetizers that can be sampled while you either linger unhurriedly in front of one of the cottage windows or retire to the patio. Whatever your pleasure, you may be surprised to find yourself strangely disappointed when your name is called to dine.
