Small Plates: Georgetown Tavern Turns 75 Wednesday
Martins Tavern in Georgetown, which opened Feb. 18, 1934, is celebrating its 75th anniversary on Wednesday.
Over the years, Martins has served politicians, athletes and celebrities, with many of the booths in the restaurant marked to commemorate the famous faces who sat in them. One such booth is the Kennedy booth also know as the proposal booth in which John F. Kennedy proposed to Jacqueline Bouvier in 1953.
Martins will be discounting the menu on Wednesday. The tavern will also celebrate the anniversary by offering a special Old Fashioned made with Makers Mark, a blend of bitters and fruit.
Its a huge milestone, owner William Martin said in a press release. Its hard to express. … For me, its all about the day-to-day running of the restaurant. Im very proud to be able to do it.
