Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

City Tavern

City Tavern

The history is in the food—and the décor, service and beer—at City Tavern, located just steps from Independence National Historical Park in the Old City neighborhood. A replica of the 1773 restaurant where Founding Fathers once gathered, City Tavern offers Colonial dishes and drinks, including an ale created from George Washington’s own recipe.
