Take your sweetheart out and see what 18th-century food was like! City Tavern is located right by Independence Hall and while the original building was razed back in the 1800s, this structure is a historically accurate representation of the place where Washington, Adams, Jefferson, and Revere all visited. Menu items include 18th-century staples like escallops of veal, applewood smoked pork chops, and rack of lamb.


The tavern was built “for the convenience and credit of the city” by a group of eminent Philadelphians who felt that their hometown deserved a fine tavern which reflected its status as the largest, most cosmopolitan city in British North America.
