Located in the heart of residential Georgetown, 1789 Restaurant provides the quintessential Washington, D.C. dining experience. The restaurant offers inspired cuisine in an elegant atmosphere, beautifully decorated with American antiques, period equestrian and historical prints and Limoges china. Its six dining rooms offer comfortable surroundings in a renovated Federal-style house.

During that year, the original site was purchased by Archbishop John Carroll, the founding father of Georgetown University; the Constitution of the United States was adopted, and Mayor Robert Peter incorporated the village of Georgetown. Though the restaurant was originally established to serve the community, today it welcomes patrons from around the world.
