With a name like Liberty Kitchen & Oysterette, you'd expect a strong oyster program, and that's what you get at this gorgeous River Oaks establishment. The little brother of the more established Liberty Kitchen in the Heights, this location is always packed with people. One of the reasons? The oysters. Fanatics can feast on a selection of fresh bivalves that come in daily from the upper East Coast and the mid-Atlantic, the East Coast of Canada, the Gulf of Mexico, Texas, Louisiana and Florida. Single selections of the day range from $2.75 to $3.50 each (about $33 a dozen). For a Southern spin on the Gulf oysters, you can also get them fried and topped with LKRO's signature bacon jam — always a win.
