Liberty Bar
    1111 S. Alamo St., (210) 227-1187, liberty-bar.com
    
    Although Liberty Bar made the horrendous mistake of abandoning their original location of perfection on Josephine all those years ago, their new home, set in a previously abandoned religious convent in Southtown was a strategic one that paid off. What’s good on the menu? Aside from “everything,” zero in on the following: goat cheese with piloncillo sauce, pot roast sandwich, grilled chicken sandwich, fettuccini with oil, garlic (and add chicken). And finish with an espresso and the Minerva’s pineapple coconut cake.
