Not to be confused with its sophisticated upstairs neighbor, 1789 restaurant, this nautically themed basement bar (note the oars on the wall) caters largely to a college crowd. Some might even swear that the bar is in fact owned by Georgetown University (it is not). Sit at one of the sturdy wooden booths and munch on basic American fare, such as burgers and chicken sandwiches, or come have a drink at the bar.
Booeymonger Restaurant is a favorite with the students of Georgetown University, which is just down the street. This crowded little restaurant resembles a neighborhood deli. Orders are taken at the front counter and patrons can pay for their food while waiting for the cooks to prepare it. The sandwiches are delicious. The Warm Ham and Brie Sandwich is particularly good. The Chicken Rico is also worth trying. It is a veritable extravaganza of grilled chicken and cheese, served on a bun.
Cosmopolitan does not even begin to describe the atmosphere at this Georgetown café. The cuisine at Cafe Milano is mainly northern Italian fare. The salads are a big sell. Individual pizzas are also popular. After dinner, the crowd spills out into the dining area, transforming the atmosphere of the cafe into a cocktail hour. So come by to wine and dine in true Italian style!
This upscale eatery serves some of the best steak dishes in the city. Porterhouse, Double Porterhouse, Double Cut Filet Mignon, New York Strip—all feature on the menu. You can whet your appetite beforehand with the seafood appetizers such as Lobster Bisque, Bluepoint Oysters on the Half Shell, and Smoked Pacific Salmon. Among desserts, your best choice would be the sinfully indulgent Chocolate Velvet Cake—it will prepare you for the toll that dining here takes on your wallet!
This Georgetown establishment has been a favorite watering hole for a diverse mix of Washingtonians since it opened its doors in 1963. The brick walls are covered in a cloudy color and vintage model planes circle near the glass ceiling. With a menu that changes daily, Clyde's offers a large selection of fine food, including items such as T-bone steak, rotisserie chicken, mahi-mahi and barbecued ribs. Brunch includes old favorites: omelets, waffles, steak and eggs and is served on weekends.
This restaurant-pub, located in the heart of Georgetown, is a popular nightspot for Washington's young professionals. Patrons will find a popular oyster bar and a split-level dining area inside. J. Paul's decor is reminiscent of turn-of-the-century dining saloons. The antique bar originally served as a saloon in the Chicago stockyards. The kitchen offers a selection of salads, burgers, sandwiches and other standard pub fare. More elaborate entrees include steak, salmon, crab cakes and barbecued ribs.
Take a break and enjoy light fare in this pretty, spacious café before returning to the chaos of the city's Georgetown district. The lunch menu, at the Peacock Cafe, contains a delightful medley of sandwich platters with famous names like the Sophia Loren—which is a warm brie and turkey sandwich on sourdough bread. Dinner offerings include soups, salads and chicken dishes with an extensive wine list to whet your palate.
