Welcome to Libertad!
A culinary adventure onto the Latin American landscape awaits you at Libertad. You’ll travel by way of small plates, allowing for many flavor experiences. The journey is vast, with dishes that speak Nuevo Latino, fare that reflects the eclectic culinary mosaic of the Latin landscape.
To give our guests from Skokie, Chicago, the North Shore, and beyond a full expedition of taste sensations, Executive Chef Armando Gonzalez offers a menu that encourages and exemplifies the meaning of Libertad – freedom - to explore. This small plates style of dining translate into dishes similar in portion so that each person can enjoy more than one dish. Think of two as an “entrée,” many as “appetizers” to share. Mix-and-match to your heart’s content.
Executive Chef / Owner Armando Gonzalez’s approach is modern, drawing inspiration from family and traditional ingredients as well as his work experience, which can be likened to a well-traveled passport of Chicago’s diverse establishments; he’s worked at numerous restaurants to learn, hone skills and foster creativity.
Specialty cocktails created by renowned Mixologists Adam Seger and Jenny Kessler of HUM Spirits and a defined wine list compiled by Sommelier Shebnem Ince of two highly regarded downtown Chicago restaurants, also provide a taste of Latin America, waking up and shaking up the senses.
The essence of Libertad is neighborhood – a small, fun restaurant with friendly prices, an open kitchen, a delicious menu and a casual but inviting setting. It’s the type of place where you can drop in any time – lunch or dinner – for a sensory escape to enjoy a few small plates or many to share.
