1789 Restaurant

1789 Restaurant Review

This dining room with Early American paintings and a fireplace could easily be a room in the White House. But all the gentility of this 19th-century town-house restaurant is offset by the down-to-earth food on the menu, which changes daily. The soups, including the pumpkin stew with local maple syrup, are flavorful. Rack of lamb and pork chop, both raised nearby, are specialties, but even the less local seafood is marked with its area so diners know where it comes from. Service is fluid and attentive. Try the apple galette or profiterole for a sweet finish.
