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 well-known local chef Jim Coleman, 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 with French onion soup or the organic salmon tartare with cucumber wasabi. We also recommend the salads and minted lamb burger with fresh-cut fries. Swordfish with grilled lemon and roasted caper dressing evokes the sun-kissed coast of France. Classic French desserts are decadent with a modern twist. Try beignets with lemon curd and chocolate dipping sauces. The light in the room is lovely, making this a prime spot just about any time of day.
