Why You Should Go: This tavern was the most important

The City Tavern in Philadelphia is the most authentic 18th century tavern you'll find in America. Built originally in 1770 the City Tavern played host to many (if not all) of the founding fathers at one time or another. George Washington met John Adams there, Ben Franklin was counted as a regular, and it was considered one of the most elegant places of its day.

Now the City Tavern hosts a restaurant owned and run by Chef Walter Staib, a James Beard Foundation Nominee who hosts a cooking show on PBS called A Taste of History.
