Georgetown restaurants you'll love
Top restaurants in Georgetown
Georgetown is more than just a so-called “aristocratic neighborhood” filled with cobblestones and ivy. Uppercrust university students, academics, and government appointees abound here but you’ll also find some of the best food around. This National Historic Landmark is home to the famous Georgetown cupcakes, as well as DC's delicious half-smokes. These sausages are often made from half-beef half-pork and come smothered in herbs, onions, and chili sauce. Delish.
You can also dig into fresh and mouth-watering oysters straight from the Chesapeake Bay in the best Georgetown restaurants. Branch out and try a wide variety of craft beer from trendy local Washington area breweries. Love wings? Don’t miss out on Washington DC’s signature mambo sauce. Carryout restaurants in Georgetown and dine-in establishments offer this condiment that’s similar to barbecue sauce but that comes with an extra zing. Simultaneously sweet and savory (as well as spicy), it’s a welcome addition to your meat. You can also smother mambo sauce over everything from fried rice to french fries.
On a hot summer’s day, why not enjoy a mint julep? Kentucky senator Henry Clay is said to have introduced this refreshing minty drink to Georgetown in the 1800s. Today, it’s typically made of whisky and mint, but back in the day, it was all about the soothing plant mixed with brandy or rum.

|DRIE FONTEINEN CUVÉE ARMAND & GASTON 2016/2017 (BLEND NO. 1) Gueuze Lambic (Tart & Funky)||$27.00|
(Flemish Brabant / 5.0% / 750 ML / Single) 3 Fonteinen Oude Geuze Cuvée Armand & Gaston is a blend of one-, two-, and three-year old traditional lambics, all brewed at Brouwerij 3 Fonteinen. Spontaneous fermentation, patient maturation in oak barrels, and continued evolution in the bottle result in a distinctively complex beer. No two bottlings are alike, as there are multiple variables in the blending process, a variety of barrel sizes and shapes, differences in aged lambic proportions, etc. This cuvée, like all of 3 Fonteinen’s lambic, is 100% natural, authentic, spontaneously fermented, and crafted with steadfast adherence to tradition, like Armand and Gaston Debelder have always done it. This Gueuze has fermented in the bottle, and will continue to develop its tastes and aromas over its long life when properly cellared. Traditional Lambic is living cultural heritage rooted in the Zenne valley! Taste, savour, enjoy and experience this unfiltered, unpasteurised, and unadulterated bee

|DE DOLLE STILLE NACHT 2013 Strong Pale Ale (Malt)||$14.00|
(West Flanders / 12.0% / 330 ML / Single) An incredibly strong and complex beer for the holidays, De Dolle uses white candi sugar and pale malts in the boil when brewing Stille Nacht.
