Much of the menu at this Georgetown institution is the same as it was when JFK proposed to Jackie in booth number three. Avoid such trying-to-be-trendy fare as seared sesame tuna and focus on the classics: oysters (raw, Rockefeller, fried, or in a creamy stew) and juicy steaks and chops. Save room for English-style bread pudding studded with raisins and drowned in warm bourbon/butterscotch sauce.
