I’ve been to The Libertine once before, but only to get drinks after our Fashion Week Dinner Party. Since Neal Brown of Pizzology and L’Explorateur fame runs the place, I knew I had to try the food.
I rounded up a bevy of gal pals and we went on a weekday for small plates and cocktails. I was really happy to find that there are a couple of salads and healthier dishes on the menu, so I didn’t have to break my no white carbs diet to go. We tried four different dishes: lamb neck rillettes, the apple salad, beets and goat cheese, and the deviled eggs.
All the dishes were delicious, but I was surprised that my favorite was the apple salad. I just ordered it to report on some of the healthier options, but it was so balanced, citrusy and nutty. One of the most craveable salads I’ve had.
And can we just talk about how cute the pink deviled eggs are? Kinda obsessed.
I wouldn’t call it super healthy, but the lamb neck rillettes were amazing. I didn’t try the bread that came with it, but the cornichons and pickled onions were the perfect salty accompaniments. This is the kind of bar food that I’m talking about!
The beets and goat cheese dish was another yummy and healthy option.
I’m definitely heading back to The Libertine sometime soon. It’s rare to find really good bar food and it’s even rarer to find good bar food with healthy options! This is a great place to grab a drink, a few friends and share a few delicious and creative plates.
