FRESH. That’s the one and only thing that stays on your mind the entire time you’re at D.C.’s new Go Green eatery, Founding Farmers. Everything taste like it’s either just been cut from the tree it grew on, freshly ground from the animal it came from or chemically made right there in front of you. The concept brings a new twist and competition to the D.C. restaurant game: fresh everything made under Eco-friendly conditions. Many of us are just learning how to recycle properly, but many of us own everything from Eco-friendly cars to Go Green purses. This restaurant helps merge the two extremes in a food feast that will make you take your friends, family, boyfriend, girlfriend…Well you get the picture…You’ll take them there for either the Cocktail of the Week, made by not just bartenders, but what Founding Farmers likes to call them, “Mixologists”, or you’ll take someone your digging on so they can fall in love with you instantly after you introduce them to one of the best burgers they will taste in life! Not to mention the Best Sliders in the District (*Hands down, this is JKGF favorite slider in the DMV). Go now. Fast. And in a hurry…before the word gets out and it’s a line around the block like at The P— (*We won’t name names, but we gave you heads up about this hot spot before word got out about their delicious spinach dip…and chicken sliders…and now you can barely get a taste in with a line that’s wrapped around the block…)
Try: The Baby Cheeseburgers, the Ramos House Fried Green Tomatoes, 1 to 2 of the Bacon-Wrapped Dates (*share this one, the flavor is delicious, but may be overwhelming after 2…) and the Chicken and Waffles OMG! The waffle is in a league of its own…we didn’t even have to add syrup…
Go, try and tell ’em JKGF sent you!
p.s. We met the Chef (*cool guy;-) and got to chat it up for a minute with him, check out the JKGF interview circa September 18, 2008.
