Opening its doors on June 30, Liberty Street Bistro (LSB) is the newest addition to what is now becoming the City of Newburgh’s “Restaurant Row.”
Located directly across from Washington’s Headquarters, the restaurant maintains an older world look that is reminiscent of New York City, downtown sophistication. The ambiance is at once sleek, but comfortable. Exposed raw brick, brown leather seating, wood floors, hanging lights and overhead fans are set off from the kitchen by a large windowed wall, which exposes the impeccable, stainless steel kitchen.
Created by chef and owner Michael Kelly, Liberty Street Bistro boasts a menu that adds a sprinkling of French and Italian influence to American fare resulting in a totally delightful and contemporary cuisine. Kelly describes the flavor of the Bistro’s food as “more nuanced and sophisticated” than many traditional dishes that “load up on heavy sauces and butter.”
The menu, itself, is unique in presentation and pricing. Guests select their dinner from four quadrants with pricing as follows: two courses are $36, three courses are $49, and four courses are $61. A slight surcharge is given when ordering octopus. Four to five selections are available in each quadrant and these will change periodically depending on seasonal availabilities.
