On The Look Out

Martin Tolchin on Upcoming Election Oct.25

October 9, 2018

Will President Trump’s policies and/or support help or hurt Republican candidates? What’s the likelihood of Democratic turnover of the House and/or Senate? Martin Tolchin will address these questions when he speaks on October 25th at 6:00 pm at St. John’s Episcopal Church, 3240 O Street, NW.

Martin Tolchin spent 40 years at The New York Times as a reporter and bureau chief and then founded The Hill newspaper and Politico.  He authored, with his wife Susan, seven books.  Mr. Tolchin’s talk last year was thoroughly enjoyed by many Georgetown Village members. You won’t want to miss this evening which is part of Georgetown Village’s Speaker Series on Contemporary Issues.

1789 Summer Specials

June 28, 2018

1789 Restaurant is pleased to release a pre-theater summer special menu available now through September 16th. The three-course menu crafted by Executive Chef Tracy O’Grady and priced at $59, is available nightly from 5:00 to 6:00 pm in the Club Room, 1789’s new dining room.

Inspired by the arrival of Lin-Manuel Miranda's blockbuster hip-hop musical “Hamilton,” the pre-theater summer special is a perfect first stop for theater-goers and summer date nights alike. “It’s hard not to feel the excitement around town over Hamilton at the Kennedy Center this summer,” says Chef O’Grady. “With the recent success of Tony Award®-winning shows starting in DC as well as new, live music venues opening, it’s a great time for our city’s arts & culture scene.”  

Guests will select from a few options for an appetizer, entrée, and dessert. Showcasing local produce, the menu is expected to evolve over the summer to reflect seasonal changes. Current standouts include Burrata & Baby Heirloom Tomatoes, Tempura Fried Soft-Shell Crab & Petite Crab Cake, Roasted Halibut, and Herb-Roasted Duck Breast.

Desserts by Pastry Chef Mollie Bird are whimsical riffs on the popular soundtrack, and include “Sugar Cane & Rum,” “Tea In The Sea,” and “Vine & Fig Tree.”

1789 Restaurant’s contemporary seasonal menu blends the taste of local, fresh ingredients into unique and flavorful dishes. Located in Georgetown at 1226 36th Street, NW, the fine-dining restaurant recently completed a multiphase expansion to introduce an adjacent and more casual Club Room as well as a stylish new bar. The 1789 Bar & Club Room’s large mahogany bar and tufted leather seating provide a welcoming lounge atmosphere. 


Reservations can be made online or by calling 202.965.1789. Complimentary valet parking is provided.
