Presidents’ Favorite Restaurants in DC

5 of 12
Calling itself “the quintessential Washington dining experience,” 1789 Restaurant has hosted Obama, as well as a slew of other politicians and celebrities. Boasting a rich history, the restaurant was aptly named for the year the property was purchased by Archbishop John Carroll—founding father of Georgetown University. During your visit, be sure to get a glass of wine from their expansive 11,000-bottle inventory located just below the restaurant in a climate-controlled wine room.
