This lower Manhattan landmark is actually a 1900 facsimile of the much-altered tavern founded by Samuel Fraunces in the 1760s. So you’re not exactly supping where General Washington supped. Still, an air of history hangs about the building, which is quite unlike anything else in the area, and, in terms of beer and whiskey selection, you could do worse.
