Liberty Tavern is Wilson Boulevard’s utility spot. The American menu, street-level bar, and nice but not too fancy dining room work for an early date, dinner with the parents, or solo weeknight meal. Whatever reason you’re there, start with the jalapeño hushpuppies and finish with a pizza and the spicy crab spaghetti. And if you want to go out afterward, you’re a short walk from the bars in Clarendon.
