The Restaurants That Were


Recently GM was researching an old restaurant in the archives of the Washington Post and came across this interesting find. It’s a map from 1975 and it charts out 39 different restaurants or food markets that existed in Georgetown at the time. The theme that unites them is that the food can be taken away so that you can walk around the neighborhood and eat. Click on the photo to blow it up to read what it says for each, but here’s the list:

  • La Ruche
  • Cafe de Paris
  • La Patisserie
  • Macripodaris Gourmetisserue
  • Black Olive
  • Ikaros
  • Number One Son
  • Gate Soup Kitchen
  • Yes
  • Swensen’s
  • Le Sorbet
  • Maison des Crepes
  • Crumpets
  • The Parlor
  • Neams
  • Booeymonger
  • French Market
  • Food Mart
  • Wisemiller’s Deli
  • Olde Georgetown Market
  • Harlod’s Deli
  • Hoya
  • Tony’s G.T. Carryout

  • Wine and Cheese Shop
