Liberte Restaurant Review

: Liberté, the swank restaurant and lounge at the Sofitel Philadelphia, is as addicting as a flute of ice cold Champagne. Now under the direction of Justin Perdue, it's a go-to place when you're peckish at off hours --- the appealing bites are served all day. Cozy up in a crushed ecru velvet booth facing windows hung with French silk draperies sparkling with a thousand little mirrors. Or grab a table by the bar, where well-crafted cocktails are the order of the day. Start a charcuterie plate or the tuna tartare with avocado mousse and taro chips. We also recommend the salads and burger with red onion confit and fresh-cut fries. Desserts are decadent with a modern twist. Try the milk chocolate pot de crème with salted peanuts and caramel popcorn or the cheesecake. The light in the room is lovely, making this a prime spot just about any time of day.
