One of Georgetown’s best-known and best-loved restaurants is celebrated its 50th anniversary this year — and it is time for everyone to join the party.

In honor of the festive occasion, this D.C. mainstay will offer specials throughout the entire day.

Patrons are invited to drop in and enjoy popular egg dishes, juice and coffee in the Omelette Room until 10 a.m. Following the breakfast, Clyde’s will keep the day fun-filled by bringing back special menu items served at Clyde’s that were popular in the 1960s and 1970s. With dishes such as London broil, filet béarnaise, and beer-battered shrimp, as well as drinks including sidecar and cir royal, guests will be transported to the era when the restaurant first opened. Menu items are priced between $5 between $25. Clyde’s of Georgetown is located at 3236 M St., NW.
