Founding Farmers

1924 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Washington, D.C. 20006

[on the corner of 20th and Pennsylvania Ave., NW – Two blocks west, 1/2 block south of the I & 18th Farragut West Metro exit]

October 10, 2013 – noon reservation, 5 adults

So much of the menu looked fantastic it was hard to decide on what to try. This place is even opened for breakfast! Our waitstaff was fantastic – even going so far as to split out the appetizers and desserts 5 ways.

Two of us had full beers (as apposed to the 3.5-4oz versions also offered) – their Breakfast Porter was rich with hints of coffee and caramel. The seasonal was an Octoberfest

We split 2 appetizers

Bacon Lollis — Cinnamon-Brown Sugar Glazed Thick-Cut Bacon
Farm Bread — Prosciutto, Fig, Mascarpone

And for entrees had:

  • Straw and Hay — Long Noodles, Asparagus, Bacon, Mushrooms, Peas
  • Grilled Cheese and Roasted Tomato Soup — Gruyere, White Cheddar, Muenster w/ chips
  • Roasted Turkey — Gruyere, Arugula, Honey Mustard w/chips
  • (2) Chicken Pot Pie — Cracked Black Pepper Biscuit Crust

We finished by sharing two desserts

Uncle Buck’s Beignets — Raspberry Coulis, Semi-Sweet Chocolate Sauce, Caramel Sauce
Triple Layer Chocolate Mousse Cake — Devil’s Food Cake, Semi-Sweet Chocolate Ganache, Strawberry Ice Cream

The beignets were very good but lighter than the traditional ones from New Orleans. The center of these were more like a pop-over, not as dense as the offerings from say Café Du Monde. They also need to be ordered with the main course as they need a 30 minute lead time. Do it – you won’t be disappointed.

Total Cost: $119 including tax (10%) plus tip (20%)
