For almost a century, Tabard Inn has offered an eclectic yet refined atmosphere for anyone seeking a European-style oasis on American soil. Our charming and unique setting is the perfect destination for all occasions.
Word-of-mouth hideaway on a tree-lined street in Dupont Circle district. Quirky character: vintage furnishings and flea market finds; no TVs but windows open to city sounds… Great restaurant.
I love to return to this creaky, history-filled, 1880s townhouse whenever I return to the District of Columbia… The capital might be haunted, but only good spirits remain at the Tabard.
“I’ll have a dozen oysters and half a dozen doughnuts,” the guy next to me says to his waiter. If the order sounds audacious, you haven’t brunched at Tabard Inn. The cozy, clattery American dining room with the leafy patio is one that food lovers keep in their back pocket when they’re tired of the trend du jour but still want to eat well.”
One of D.C.’s favorite brunch spots is especially glorious in warm weather, when you can eat alfresco in the ivy-clad brick sanctuary out back. The global-inspired, yet regionally sourced menu will leave you satisfied, whether you opt for oysters from the Chesapeake or a dozen of the homemade donuts. Show up early and prepare to build an appetite—the patio doesn’t take reservations.
