Participant: Liberty Food & Wine Exchange
by Johnathan L. Wright
Liberty Food & Wine Exchange is the flagship property in chef Mark Estee’s Reno Local Food Group. Liberty, with its windows affording people watching on First and Sierra streets, combines a market, wine bar and restaurant; a basement butcher shop and a double-mouthed wood-fire oven reflect the artisan ethos.
Among the highlights: a revolver cocktail (bourbon, bitters, coffee and maraschino liqueurs), Liberty fondue, seasonal salads with local produce, an Estee pizza (sopressata, ‘nduja spicy sausage, hot parmesan), a grass-fed burger with Liberty bacon, in-house pappardelle Bolognese and nightly lamb dishes from local Borda Ranch.
We believe the dinner table is where the exchange happens, where synergy builds and where we create unforgettable ‘fork and knife moments’.Mark Estee, owner
