Just knowing this tavern served many of the founding fathers in the 18th C. was enough of a lure for me. But even more interesting is how vibrant it sill is. The Dingle Whiskey bar offers umpteen brands of whiskey, bourbon, rye, scotch - and what seems like hundreds of beers. You can also dine in there. I enjoyed a... More

While visiting friends prior to a cruise my wife and I took a ferry ride from Staten Island and our goal was to stop here as we are American History buffs. It is a national historic landmark and served as the headquarters for George Washington during peace negotiations with the British. We sat at the bar and had a few... More

My husband and I have been to Fraunces twice. We love the history and the beer. The rich traditional decor adds to the experience. Try the Porterhouse Red Ale.....smooth as water.

This is my favorite tavern in all of NYC. I'm fascinated by George Washington anyway and to have drinks in one of his former homes is a treat. This place is unique, historic, and offers up some fantastic choices in beers, wines, whiskeys, and cocktails. You almost feel like your back in the 18th century having a draught with George!

The restaurant was pretty inside and the view is spectacular as it looks out over Central Park. The food was good but not great. Seems like they are trying too hard to be "upscale" and forgot that real people have to eat the food. I had the chicken and brussels sprouts which all had a great flavor however the chicken... More

This was a business lunch and someone else made the reservation so I had no expectations. We entered and to the right it looked like lunch in church with cushioned pews on the right. We were ushered to the left further back perfect for business lunch dining. We ordered fish and chips and the pot pie; both were exceptional although... More

In a city that's all go, go, go, the Fraunces Tavern is a little slice of what the city looked like in the past. The restaurant boasts several rooms with different feels. The food is classically American. I had the Chicken Pot Pie which was delicious and filling (couldn't actually finish it).

This place has wonderful history (check out museum upstairs while you are here - only a short tour is needed) and then go downstairs and sit in one of the 4 different bar areas and relax. Lots of beers available and the staff was very helpful if you cant decide on one. (Try a sampler). You can also relax in... More

We would urge anyone visiting NYC to visit Fraunces Tavern if for no other reason than to soak up the history of the place. We enjoyed the food, the drinks, the wait staff, and the fact that we were in the historic place that it is.

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
