Restaurant review: Washington DC's Founding Farmers
A couple of weekends ago my husband and I had the opportunity to get away alone. Since our boys were staying with friends who live just outside Washington DC, we decided to stay close by.
The American family farmer is at the heart of Founding Farmers.We believe it is the right of all diners and lovers of a green "meal away from home" to enjoy an exquisite, fulfilling and honest meal. At Founding Farmers you can trust that everything we serve is sourced from fine, high quality family farms, and will be prepared with the utmost care and attention by our own very talented and dedicated Chef Graham Duncan.
Beyond the physical structure, Founding Farmers is a Certified Green Restaurant™, recognized by the Green Restaurant Association for eco-friendly operational measures. These measures include front-of-house and back-of-house recycling, high-efficiency water and energy usage and using recycled paper products whenever possible. For our guests, it means the menus are printed on recycled paper with soy-based inks, and that guests are offered the option of fresh filtered still or sparkling Natura water, served in reusable glass carafes rather than waste-producing glass or plastic bottles.
