Ever since we transformed a two-room watering hole into a preeminent menu-driven saloon over 50 years ago, Clyde's Restaurant Group has always seen Washington as more than a city of politics. Behind every one of the 12 properties owned and operated by Clyde's Restaurant Group is a concept designed to offer a truly memorable dining experience in Washington.
Perhaps that is why Clyde's Restaurant Group has remained one of the most successful and enduring privately-owned restaurant companies in the nation. While we've certainly created a formula that works, what keeps us evolving are the friends we've made along the way, the energy of our staff, and the continued growth of a place we lovingly call home.
We're pleased that more menus are featuring words like "locally-raised" and "sustainable," because we were one of the first in Washington to use them. Long ago, Clyde's Restaurant Group chose to bypass traditional commercial produce routes and opt for locally-raised, farm-grown vegetables and fruits. Not only does this provide fresher ingredients for our chefs and guests, but we consider it part of our ongoing collaboration with the local economy to design dining experiences that support the region’s growth. In addition to our produce, our legendary burgers are made using hormone-free, grass-fed beef, and our Bell & Evans chicken is antibiotic- and hormone-free as well, sourced right here in the area.
Each property is as unique as the neighborhood it inhabits, with our selections further complementing the wide variety of flavors, textures, and courses we prepare. Over a decade ago, we created the Clyde's Restaurant Group Core Wine Program. With sorting performed once a year and encompassing several rounds of tastings and pairings by noted wine consultants and published wine authors, such as Michael Franz and Paul Lukacs, we know of no other restaurant company in North America that conducts a process as extensive and rigorous.
We are a neighborhood saloon devoted to the communities we inhabit and the metro area as a whole. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Giving back to the communities where we live and work is important to us. When we open a restaurant, we expect it to be a part of a community for many years to come. We strive to find ways for our employees and our company to be involved and give back to the community. With a diverse variety of local fundraising activities and corporate giving programs, CRG and its restaurants contribute annually to a number of worthwhile charities. In 2016, we contributed over $400,000 to over 700 organizations in the metropolitan region.
