THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Liberty Grill Restaurant Review

: There was a time when a new restaurant from quirky chef Fred Eric created quite a stir. This project from Eric---the second one downtown, following his Tiara Café---quietly opened in the booming South Park area, a stone’s throw from Staples Center in an old Mission-style building. Inside, worn brick walls are lined with nostalgic covers of Liberty magazines (a once-popular Saturday Evening Post competitor), Old Glory and various other patriotic nods to Americana. At cozy booths or out on a pleasant patio, diners tuck into starters like crab cakes, spinach-artichoke dip and clever deep-fried balls of macaroni-and-cheese, served with marinara dipping sauce. The main event features meatloaf, braised short ribs, a steak too pricy for this kind of place, and a panko-crusted take on the old favorite, chicken-fried steak with country gravy. Lunch is also a celebration of comfort cuisine, with sloppy Joes and burgers among the more popular items.
