You can’t miss the Liberty Kitchen Garden Oaks’ location. Just look for the big red rooster adjacent to the building. The neighborhood eatery sits right in the middle of the historic Garden Oaks-Oak Forest subdivision. Garden Oaks history dates back to the 1930s. Over the years, the original bungalows and homes built for war veterans evolved to homes that are now modern as part of redevelopment.
The outside of the restaurant reminds me of a quaint cottage. If you didn’t know much about Liberty Kitchen Garden Oaks, you should know it’s a place to find good food. Walking into Liberty Kitchen felt like I was looking at a visual board off Pinterest. The blue, orange, green, and white colors adorn the restaurant with chic accents and a variation of chairs and bar stool seating. I immediately noticed the crystal chandelier and orange couches that serve as a waiting area for guests.
Lance Fegen, Culinary Director for Liberty Kitchen, invited the Houston Food Blogger Collective members and me out to a complimentary tasting. They hosted our group in small private room inside of the restaurant. The room had the perfect natural lighting coming in from the windows overlooking the neighborhood. The staff had the table setting placed with the brunch and cocktail menu displayed.
Liberty Kitchen Garden Oaks Menu Items
We started with a few appetizers. My favorite from the family style appetizers menu were the Costa Brava Cocktail of Shrimp and Fried Oysters. This dish came with lightly salted tortilla chips. We had an option to choose from a list of entrees including the Red Velvet Pancake Platter, Frosted Flake French Toast, Fried Chicken Sliders and the Real Cowboy Surfers Donut Bowl. I picked the bowl.
I mention in my previous post about Houston Restaurant Weeks that Liberty Kitchen is one of my favorite spots to bring people from out of town. They take pride in developing their menu items and making each location’s menu uniquely different. You can get lunch, dinner and happy hour on the weekends at Liberty Kitchen Garden Oaks. They offer happy hour Monday-Friday from 3-6 p.m. and Sundays from 5-9 p.m. Most recently, the restaurant added a breakfast happy hour for $7 on the weekends from 8-9:33 a.m. The menu offers five menu items and all come with coffee, juice or milk.
Outside of the restaurant, you can find a patio with additional seating. For my beer lovers, Liberty Kitchen has a beer garden with a special food menu items.
