Long ago Clyde's Restaurants made the decision to bypass traditional commercial produce routes and buy instead from local farms. From spring through autumn, the restaurants fruits and vegetables are always fresh and of the highest quality. Likewise, many of the meats, fish, poultry and seafood are sourced direct from their native regions. Today, Clyde's menus are created around these fresh, natural ingredients, using classic American recipes that showcase their flavor and texture. Featuring great crab cakes and nightly seafood specialties among its many extraordinary creations, Clyde's is a Washington institution.
