Trummer's on Main Named in Washingtonian Reader Favorites
Clifton restaurant chosen in four categories by readers of monthly magazine.
The restaurant came in first in the "American restaurant" category and also first in "Decor." The restaurant's popcorn ice cream was singled out and its decor was noted for its "old South elegance."
The restaurant was also named third in the "Special Occasions" category: "You'd never guess that in this 19th-century mansion — with porch lanterns and paintings of Ulysses S. Grant — lie such whimsies as banana mousse with olive-oil powder," the magazine noted.
Trummer's on Main was also named third in the Cocktails category. Co-owner Stefan Trummer was singled out for his gin and elderflower cocktail "Sage 11."
The restaurant was opened in 2009 by husband and wife team Stefan and Victoria Trummer. The restaurant is housed in a building that dates to 1869, when it was opened as The Clifton Hotel.
