The elegant 1789 appears to have stepped directly out of its namesake year. Filled with antiques and white tablecloths, it has the look of a country inn and a menu that's brimming with fresh, local dishes, like fried soft-shell crab and Shenandoah Valley lamb chop. Pair your meal with a bottle of your own choosing (this spot is BYOB!) and finish it off with the Hummingbird Cake: banana brûlée, vanilla pudding, pineapple, dark rum-toffee sauce, and banana ice cream.
