Once called "the most genteel tavern in America" by John Adams and the first unofficial "White House," Chef Walter Staib's City Tavern has boasted the finest celebrations since 1773. With over 230 years of hospitality, City Tavern has been the centerpiece of affairs now immortalized in history. An evening at City Tavern is certain to be remembered. Just imagine sampling specialties, such as pepperpot soup, colonial turkey pot pie, roast duckling, Thomas Jefferson's sweet potato biscuits paired with ales the ales of the revolution made from George Washington & Benjamin Franklin's recipes -- all served by costumed wait staff. <br><br>Watch an episode of A Taste of History on PBS, our Chef Proprietor Walter Staib will give you glimpse of what we do here at City Tavern.

"Old City Tavern is a great place to dine whether you live in or are visiting Philadelphia. The bar area is just like General Washingtin would have expected. The food was really great. The bread basket was an interesting combination of breads made as the would have been in Revelutionary times. I had the mushroom toast for an app, and a seafood pasta special. The mushroom toast was wonderful. The special contained a generous amount of crab claw, scallop and shrimp."
