1789 Restaurant Launches New Prix Fixe Menu


After a 12-week closure for roof repairs, 1789 Restaurant reopens this week with a new menu. The menu, designed by Executive Chef Samuel Kim, allows the guest to create their own tasting menu of either four, five or six courses. Priced at $85, $97 and $109 respectively, the menu is available seven nights a week starting September 6th.

Standout menu items include Uni Jar with roasted lobster, fennel, maitake mushroom and black truffle; Beef Tartare with spiced red wine, caviar, poached quail egg, tendon puff, cured egg yolk and shallots; Salsify Carbonara with duck confit, shishito peppers, pancetta and Parmigiano-Reggiano; Arctic Char with zucchini, squash blossom and pickled cucumber; Duck with cauliflower, couscous, pearl barley, Meyer lemon, foie gras truffle and huckleberry; and Rib-Eye with mille-feuille potato, mushroom puree, bone marrow flan and carrots. Dessert options include Maple Flan with a walnut financier, ginger toffee tuile, bruleed spiced pluot, and pear-Reisling sorbet as well as a Chocolate Pave dark chocolate mousse, amaretti cookie, espresso caramel sauce, salted ganache and vanilla mascarpone ice cream.


The Georgetown building that houses 1789 Restaurant, The Tombs and F.Scott’s closed on June 11th, 2016 for necessary roof repairs. While closed, Clyde’s Restaurant Group invested in a new French top range for 1789 Restaurant. “We’re excited about the new flat top stove,” says Chef Samuel Kim “it opens up technical and creative opportunities for the kitchen and a perfect time for us to offer a prix fixe menu. The tasting menus will allow our guests to experience more dishes at a great value.”

Located at 1226 36th Street NW, 1789 Restaurant is Georgetown’s premier food and wine experience with a wine cellar storing almost 200 different wines. Corkage fees are waived on Tuesdays for oenophiles with their own collection.

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