LIBERTINE CUISINE. The opening of the new Galleries Lafayette in Jakarta’s Pacific Place Mall not only bring the capitol’s fashion-forward consumers access to new exclusive brands, it also hosts one of the city’s best new French restaurant.

Liberté French Brasserie (Galeries Lafayette, 2nd floor, Pacific Place, SCBD, Jakarta; 62 821 6400 0599; features warm, comfortable interiors which are a perfect background for its flavorful, filling and earthy classic French cuisine. The menu is built around classic dishes which are stylish and elegant yet simple and hearty. Specialties of Liberté include Escargot Vol-au Vent, Barramundi with Ratatouille, Moules Frites and Steak Frites. And like any good French restaurant, they have decadent desserts to tempt any taste, including Profiteroles in Chocolate Soup and perfectly-crisp macaroons. The drinks at Liberté pay fun and whimsical homage to the French, with fresh and interesting twists on traditional cocktails.
