You don't have to be a history buff to enjoy this spot, which was built in 1719, making it one of the oldest structures in the city. In 1762, it was purchased by Samuel Fraunces, who turned it into one of the most popular taverns of the day. The building was even the site where George Washington delivered his farewell address to the officers of the Continental Army in 1783. The premises recently underwent refurbishment, and the adjoining restaurant, Fraunces Tavern, offers an accessible menu peppered with classic Anglo favorites like fish and chips, bangers and mash, and shepherd's pie along with a very good beer selection.
