José Andrés Reopens America Eats Tavern in Georgetown

February 28, 2018

José AndrésThinkFoodGroup will reopen America Eats Tavern this summer in the former Old Glory Bar-B-Que space at 3139 M Street in Georgetown.


In addition to the American classics, Andrés will be introducing barbeque to the restaurant’s menu to add to the culinary experience, as well as a more casual ambiance. Andrés and his culinary team have conducted extensive research to identify the best products available, highlighting local meats, seafood, wines, cheeses, beers and other products from the mid-Atlantic region.

“We’re excited to bring America Eats Tavern back to the district, where it all began, especially to historic Georgetown where we’ve been wanting to open for a long time,” said Andrés. “We know what makes America great is in no small part its rich and diverse culinary heritage and that is just what we invite everyone to come in and enjoy!”


Originally launched in 2011 in collaboration with the Foundation for the National Archives, America Eats Tavern was first conceived as a pop-up in the former Café Atlantico space.  From there, Andrés and his team brought the concept to the Ritz-Carlton Tysons Corner, just outside Washington, DC in McLean, VA. In its newest incarnation, the restaurant will be a partnership with longtime Georgetown restaurateur Bechara Nammour of Capital Restaurant Group.
