Fraunces Tavern

American in Financial District & Lower Manhattan

Can you really pass up a chance to eat where George Washington supped in 1762 (it's been documented)? Expect heaping portions of tavern stew, clam chowder, slow-roasted chicken pot pie, followed by a rather cheeky classic sundae for two (brownie bits, peanuts, bananas, cherries and hot fudge). The bar, filled with friendly locals, is great for a snack and a drink.
