Founding Farmers- Washington, DC

My sister and I had a great weekend recently learning to use our DSLR cameras on a photography walking tour of Washington, DC. Not only did we have a beautiful day and some quality time together but we also got some great photos! After our tour we decided to head out to lunch and decided to go to Founding Farmers.

Founding farmers is a certified green restaurant that has an old farmhouse feel with old wood, comfortable seating and some seriously great food.  Though the restaurant is not vegan, it is focused on fresh farm to table local food and it does have a whole vegan menu and as well as a full bar.

From the vegan menu:

"In Partnership with and Compassion Over Killing, Founding Farmers classic dishes carefully recreated to give you our extraordinary flavors without the use of meat, fish, fowl, dairy or eggs; while staying true to supporting family farmers and purveyors who are committed to sustainability.

What's not to love?

We started off our meal with a cocktail. Why not? No kids, no timetable, what the heck!

For lunch, I decided on the BBQ "Chicken" and Slaw sandwich. It was absolutely awesome. It came on an English muffin and was smothered in a fruity barbecue sauce. The sauce I am going to attempt to recreate in my own kitchen- it was seriously to die for.

The place itself has a very cool vibe. We ate at the bar and I watched the bartender crank out all sorts of interesting drinks.

When I am back in DC I will go again for sure!

If you are in DC you can find Founding Farmers at 1924 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, in the International Monetary Fund (IMF) building.


  1. Looks good.. Why didn't I go here when I was in DC a couple of weeks ago? Next time!

  2. I'm headed to DC at the end of the month and was just starting to research restaurant options - perfect timing! I'm hoping this is close enough to our hotel to get to fairly easily, it looks great!
