The sisters who once lived in this historic convent (now a tropical pink) would recognize the thick limestone walls and the simple Texas pine tables, but the eclectic menu is all Liberty. Date-night late-night cocktails are seasonal and numbered (the No 5 spring cocktail, for example, with tequila, St-Germain, and crème de violette), and appetizers like the chile relleno en nogada and the goat cheese with piloncillo sauce certainly shout out the namesake promise of free-spirited food. Daily specials are a bargain at lunch, and the menu merger of Elizabeth David’s English sensibility (those fresh-baked loaves at every meal), Southern pies and cakes, and borderlands stews makes for a heady, hearty, comforting meal no matter the time of day.
