At Mussel Bar, the name speaks for itself. Pots of mussels are the move - try the broth with mushrooms, bacon, and truffle, get extra bread, and soak up the pot until it’s dry. When it’s not too humid out, grab a table for happy hour on their outdoor patio.

The Fainting Goat
Fainting Goat isn’t great, but you’ll end up here at some point. When the time comes, go heavy on the drinks and light on the food.
The Liberty Tavern
Liberty Tavern is Clarendon’s utility restaurant - use the American spot for dates, dinner with the parents, or a meal at the bar.
A classic that can be used for dates or heavy drinking. Maybe even at the same time. The food’s great too.
