Chef Staib is well known from his fifteen time Emmy® Award winning program A Taste of History®, where he brings culinary history to your home. It all started over 25 years ago when Staib brought his philosophy to City Tavern with well prepared recipes based on tried and true traditions, not trends, made fresh daily from scratch. City Tavern has boasted the finest celebrations since 1773, the location of the first Independence Day celebration called 'the most genteel tavern in America', by John Adams and the first unofficial 'White House.” Over 230 years of hospitality, City Tavern has been the centerpiece of affairs immortalized in history. An evening at City Tavern will be remembered. Imagine sampling pepperpot soup, colonial turkey pot pie, roast duckling, Thomas Jefferson's sweet potato biscuits paired with ales which are the ales of the revolution made from Washington & Franklin's recipes -- all served by costumed wait staff.
