Fraunces Tavern


New York’s oldest standing structure (1719) is a tavern—just like in the old days. It’s also a museum with permanent exhibits that include the second-floor Long Room, where George Washington bade farewell to his troops in 1783, and the Clinton Room, a recreated Federal-style dining room. Several other galleries host changing exhibits of early Americana.

The restaurant, a maze of dining rooms, features standard American fare for brunch, lunch, and dinner. Celebrate the Spirit of 1776 with the specialty chicken pot pie (one of Washington’s favorite dishes) and a glass of whiskey or pint of small-batch beer in the Dingle Whiskey Bar.
