The food isn't all that memorable, but Gadsby's scores high on novelty. Named after the Englishman who operated the tavern from 1796 to 1808 (when it was the center of Alexandria’s social life), Gadsby's tries to emulate an 18th-century hostelry; it's a bit kitschy but a fun place for a meal.

Get into the spirit of things by ordering ‘George Washington’s Favorite,’ a rich glazed duck breast served with scalloped potatoes and corn pudding.
