The dinner-only restaurant specializes in yesteryear cuts of beef, pork and lamb. Brunch served both Sat. and Sun.

Converting four-year-old Uptown Cafeteria into Libertine is Parasole’s second Calhoun Square remake. The first was the ill-fated conversion of Figlio into Il Gatto, a belly flop that might signal caution for future endeavors. Not here. McKee’s dynamic solution — think of him as Parasole’s Not-So-Secret Weapon — defies a pat characterization, although a lazy label would be “affordable steakhouse.”
