Where: This tavern is located in lower Manhattan, on Broad Street and Pearl Street, NYC.
Who: Samuel Fraunces was known as a restauranteur, inn keeper and perhaps more importantly, a close servant and advisor to George Washington, during the Revolutionary War.
Why: This location was actually owned by Mr. Fraunces during the Revolutionary War. Also, this location was known as a regular meeting location for George Washington as well. The Tavern stands mostly as landmark to Revolutionary War and role Mr. Fraunces’ played.
This location has a classic feel to it. I love the presence of history in one of the most modern cities in the world!
