Liberty Bar

Liberty’s funky charm survived a move a few years ago to a converted convent, an oddly appropriate venue for a kitchen that serves up such quirky offerings as a celestial eggplant purée, crisp (and very popular) crab cakes, and a chile relleno en nogada that would make any Mexican restaurant proud. Pepper fans will bliss out over the minguchi, a combination of grilled poblanos and bell peppers in a melty cheese sauce. Do not overlook the daily specials, and dessert should be Virginia Green’s chocolate cake, a River City classic. Despite the snappier, more-upscale dining rooms, Liberty Bar still goes it own way, and it’s a way that has earned it many fans. (3/14)
