10 of America’s Best Historic Restaurants

Submitted by on September 11, 2012 – 7:50 pmNo Comment

According to CNN, “Eating well while traveling doesn’t always mean hitting up the newest, hottest and trendiest locales.”

The advice from writer Amanda Kludt? “Seek out some of America’s wonderful, still-thriving historic restaurants.”

Here are her choices:

*Old Ebbitt Grill, 675 15th Street NW, Washington, D.C. (map) — “attracting the likes of presidents and beltway movers and shakers since its opening in 1856”.

*Keens Steakhouse, 72 West 36th Street New York, New York (map) — “What to order? That’s easy: the famed mutton chop, on the menu from the beginning [1885] and perfected year after year.”

*Canlis, 2576 Aurora Avenue North, Seattle, Washington (map) — “the building is a midcentury masterpiece”.

*Pacific Dining Car, 1310 West Sixth Street, Los Angeles, California (map) — ” Because it’s one of the few fine dining options open 24-hours a day, it enjoys a solid patronage from late-night eaters.”

*Swan Oyster Depot, 1517 Polk Street, San Francisco, California (map) — “The space consists of just one long raw bar, with around 20 stools, manned by a handful of friendly shuckers and servers doling out oysters, clams, lobster, chowders, seafood salads and wine.”

*Jacob Wirth, 31 Stuart Street, Boston, Massachusetts (map) — ”
They serve solid pub grub … and have one of the biggest beer selections in the city.”

*Cisco’s Restaurant Bakery, 1511 East Sixth Street, Austin, Texas (map) — “Widely known for serving the best breakfast in Austin.”

*Commander’s Palace, 1403 Washington Avenue, New Orleans, Louisiana (map) — ” Head over there for an elegant dinner of haute Creole dishes.”

*Calumet Fisheries, 3259 East 95th Street, Chicago, Illinois (map). “A take-out fish shack and smokehouse on the edge of the Calumet River.”

*Berghoff’s, 17 West Adams Street, Chicago, Illinois (map) — German fare and beer: “One of the oldest family-run businesses in the country.”

*Ralph’s, 760 South Ninth Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (map) — “One of the true Italian-American originals.”

And, let your Road Trips Foodie add one of her personal favorites:

*Rathskeller, 401 East Michigan Street, Indianapolis, Indiana (map) — In the cellar of a building designed more than a century ago by Kurt Vonnegut‘s grandfather is Indy’s oldest restaurant, featuring good German cuisine and the best selection of beer — imported, domestic and craft-brewed — in town.

What are your favorite historic eateries?
