- 1789 is one of Washington's more revered restaurants, having served well-heeled patrons for nearly 50 years. Tucked away on a quiet street not far from Georgetown University, it's decorated to resemble a country inn; it contains several separate seating areas (called "Rooms"), each with their own unique name and stuffed with varying styles of antique furniture and charming old prints. The different rooms lend an air of familiarity to the restaurant, making you feel as though you're actually dining in someone's house. In an era when trendy, spare, sometimes characterless decor is the norm, 1789's coziness is a bit of a welcome departure.
The menu is traditional, and heavy on meat and fish, though vegetarians will enjoy the seasonal and organic soup and salad offerings.
