Some of the items we had were very, very good - fried chicken, cornbread, a Pisco Sour cocktail. Others were average, and the prime rib was surprisingly tough and had to be replaced with short ribs. Service was friendly and cheerful.

First, based on our experience, a reservation is a must (unless you want to wait at the bar for a while, which would be a good option). We visited after a theater matinee at the Kennedy Center. The food was outstanding, locally sourced and delicious....More

Don't know for sure, but I doubt it. Bacon that good cannot be halal.

Founding Farmers, the Greenest Restaurant in DC, is owned by the more than 40,000 family farmers of the NDFU, serving American inspired real food and drink with an emphasis and focus on cooking from scratch. While our restaurant is supplied by hundreds of family farms everywhere, that doesn't mean we know every farm, and that doesn't mean we never have to buy product from the traditional (corporate) supply chain, but it does mean we're working hard to direct our purchasing dollars where it aligns with our values. We're serving the best food we can, made from scratch in our kitchens every day. Our innovative, American dishes are made primarily with pure ingredients honoring the farmers and their hard-earned bounty.
