With its rich 75 year history (every president since Harry Truman has dined at this classy establishment) Martin's Tavern is a Georgetown institution. The traditional American restaurant was especially dear to young congressman John F. Kennedy, who proposed to his stunning future wife, Jacqueline Bouier, at booth No. 3.
Georgetown diners are lucky to have culinary star Michel Richard so close by on M street. Reserve a table for a romantic evening or a special occasion. You'll understand why Richard's cookbook is entitled ?Happiness in the Kitchen."
