No visit to Georgetown’s see-and-be-scene M Street promenade is complete without a stop at one of the neighborhood’s many watering holes, and Clyde’s of Georgetown is first among the local equals. High-volume in both senses of the phrase, the place easily absorbs busfuls of tourists yet somehow still manages to attract regulars to its brass-railed bar. Perhaps it’s the food. In addition to serving tavern staples—herb-roasted half chicken, for example—Clyde’s has some local and southern twists, with the likes of jumbo lump crab cakes, sliders and collard greens. Well-chosen wines and craft-brewed beers complete your meal, served by efficient, preternaturally cheery youngsters.
