Marcos Rivera,
General Manager / Owner

Marcos grew up in the restaurant business, working in the kitchen. As the scion of Las Palmas in Chicago and the suburbs, he had his own creative ideas. Backed with knowledge and experience, he began to explore beyond his Mexican roots and the Mexican American staples of burritos and tacos.

Skokie is home for him and his young family, and knowing the hours a restaurant requires, combining the two in the same town just makes sense. Marcos embraces his commitment of living and working in Skokie just as he honors the privilege of being the city’s first Latin American restaurant.

J. Omar Magana,
Designer / Owner

Omar brings a subtle yet poignant essence of Latin America to the design of Libertad. An artist and founder of the non-profit arts organization, Expresiones-Artísticas, Omar’s perspective blends natural, weathered elements, such as the wood of the banquettes to the metal framed bar stools, with classic lines. He uses color along with the artwork (acquired from Adonay Navarroa moonlighting construction worker from Honduras) to create mood that’s modern, yet relaxing, sanguine and mystical.

Omar is a prominent member of the Chicago arts community, with which Libertad is proud to be associated.
