We visited Fraunces Tavern for Saturday Brunch as part of a family birthday celebration. This is the site where George Washington bid farewell to his troops at the end of the Revolutionary War; so needless to say, it has extreme historical significance. The brunch menu selections were extensive and excellent; and the $29. prix fixe brunch menu [which includes an... More

A must visit for the historic value of America. Washington said farewell to the troops here. Founded in 1715. Oldest tavern in NY. The food was OK as was the service. There was live music as well.

This is a great spot for families or couples or single dining. Very local and very fun! Ask to be seated in the original part of the restaurant - very historic and very interesting. Located on the second floor is the Tavern's museum. An actual real museum. Hours vary, and do not coincide with the late night restaurant hours. Call... More

We went for lunch after the Statue of Liberty, it was great. We had the octopus appetizer and I had the mushroom sandwich, he had the ribeye sandwich. Everything was top notch and delicious! Highly recommend. Just blocks away from the Statue of Liberty or the Financial District.

Staying in Financial District

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.
