Mr.President Come Dine with Me at Old Ebbit Grill

While in D.C. we were told by many to go to the Old Ebbitt Grill. The Old Ebbit Grill is…..

Old Ebbitt Grill is just steps from The White House and museums in downtown Washington. Established in 1856, it was a favorite of Presidents Grant, Cleveland, Harding and Theodore Roosevelt and is still a popular meeting spot for political insiders, journalists, celebrities and theater-goers.

Its Beaux-Arts facade, mahogany and velvet booths and bars set in marble, brass and beveled glass are Washington at its finest, and The Oyster Bar at Old Ebbitt is D.C.’s most famous.
Today it is complemented by the Ebbitt Express, a stylish carryout in the Atrium, popular with downtown workers.



This places was packed with all types of people. Young singles hanging out at the bar, and state workers having  a dinner with their colleges. We felt a little under dressed, but we did see a few people wearing t-shirts and jeans so we figured we were ok.

Our server was so kind and gave us some wonderful recommendations off of of the menu. He told us that Rachel Ray had been here and she loved the Crab Cakes, so of course I had to get them!!! The Crab Cake was a wonderful selection, the crab was thick and full of crab meat not too fried but tender to the touch.

It was a little small of this girl so Hubby and I split a piece of their amazing sweet cornbread. It was so moist and topped with honey, it was almost like a dessert.

I loved D.C. this was my second time there, and I still have soooo much more to see. As a History major I feel like a kid in a candy store in the middle of this great big city, wanting more and more every time I go back.
