Eat the History of America
Continue your experience from the National Archives
Named after the Works Progress Administration (WPA) writers project of the 1930s, America Eats offered a new take on American classics and celebrated native ingredients and some long forgotten dishes, from burgoo to oysters Rockefeller. With recipes and stories collected through extensive research, and with help from the National Archives and a culinary advisory council of chefs and scholars, the menu will showcased the fascinating history of our nation one plate at a time, whether it was the origins of New England clam chowder or the introduction of grapefruit to America.
- As of July 4th, 2012, America Eats Tavern has concluded its one year culinary experience. Thank you DC for a great year!
