We stopped in for a drink after dining upstairs in the elegant 1789 Restaurant. The two could not be more different.

The Tombs is a great local hangout with excellent food and an even better bar atmosphere. I have made it a point to go here during every visit to the city. The burgers are some of the best that I have found anywhere.
