Founding Farmers chicken and waffles is Truly one of the best dishes I've ever eaten. Perfect in its simplicity but astonishingly complex flavors. Maple sweetness, chewy chicken, gooey Mac, salty seasoning, lemony green beans a real mouthful and almost more than one person can eat!More

Description
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.
