1789 Restaurant Tips (3)

The 1789 Restaurant provides...

The 1789 Restaurant provides exceptional food, relaxed atmosphere and gracious service in an elegant, award winning environment. (Ask VT traveler, Krystine from Singapore!! She loved it!) It is located at 1226 36th Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. (202) 965-1789 in Georgetown, directly adjacent to the Georgetown University campus. It has five distinctively decorated dining rooms, both upstairs and down. Extremely comfortable. They offer “American cuisine” (whatever that is) featuring venison, (deer) rack of lamb, veal, Maryland rockfish, crab cakes, soft–shell crabs and lobster, and seasonal foods. Their pastry chef offers a daily selection of house–made breads, fruit desserts, chocolate deserts and a very good créme brûlée. Stay away if you’re watching your waisteline.

It also located directly adjacent to a fun “watering hole” (bar), the Tombs. Check out both of them. Great time and in a very interesting part of the DC area, Georgetown. This is the area where the movie “Exorcist” was filmed. It is best experienced on a nice, foggy, cold Washington, DC evening.

It’s expensive, so don’t plan on going there all the time. You’ll go broke and you’ll gain a million pounds of weight.

A great Georgetown location in an old townhouse which is divided into five dining areas that each has a different look. This place works for romance or for a power dinner with a politician (not that I would know about that!).

Favorite Dish Cool name, great, elegant American food.
Brook trout is a winner.

Most definitely - 1789, one of the city's top restaurants - located here at historic Georgetown. My dinner here was made even more memorable since I didn't have to pick up the tab. ;-)

This impressive restaurant comprises of two levels. I would suggest that you make a special request to be seated on the main floor (i.e. downstairs) where the ambience is cosier and more 'romantic'. There's also a fireplace here. How quaint! Oh, and enjoy your meal!

Favorite Dish The restaurant serves basically New American cuisine. If you ask me, I would highly recommend you to try the mouth-watering Seafood Stew!
