Dead Presidents Pub & Restaurant, which was recently ranked one of the Best Bars in America by Esquire, pays tribute to presidential and U.S. heritage with regional pub dishes and American brews. Culinary crews build plates named for former commanders in chief, such as Roosevelt, Jefferson, and Megatron, using steak fillets, barbecued ribs, pulled pork, and seafood. An extensive roster of beers ranges from local and East Coast microbrews on tap to bottled domestic craft beers to special bottles 16 ounces or larger.
The bar's softly lit rooms, wood-paneled walls, and hardwood floors provide a sleek lounge area that resounds with murmured guesses about which president was secretly a warlock on Quizzo trivia nights. The pub often celebrates its executive namesakes with special President's Day soirees, which have included costume parties and pig roasts.
