- JAJoannaAWashington, D.C. Area •4 reviews4.0Dined on Jan 1, 2023Food was amazing (best Caesar salad I’ve ever had), service was very good, got everything right, unobtrusive, perfect. My only complaint is the tables were pretty close together and the acoustics are bad. Hard to hear across the table, silverware and glass noise reverberated. Could do with some sound panels to change the acoustics.More infoThe Smith – Penn Quarter, Washington, D.C$$$$• American• Penn Quarter•4.5

- NNicoleNew York / Tri-State Area •5 reviews5.0Dined on Jan 1, 2023We were celebrating and hosting friends from out of town and brought them to Founding Farmers for the great food and ambience. It truly exceeded expectations. It was a busy day at the restaurant (new year's day around brunch), but every single staff member we interacted with was so deeply kind and present with us. We had someone with allergies with us and the whole kitchen and pastry team looked out to care for them. Major shoutout to our server Randy (Randi?) and manager Josue who were both spectacular. And, as always, all of the food was out of this world. We will be back and we will recommend to others. Thanks for getting our new year off to a great start!More infoFounding Farmers - DC$$$$• American• Foggy Bottom•4.5
- AMAliciaMWashington, D.C. Area •4 reviews5.0Dined on Jan 1, 2023Had a great brunch on New Years Day thanks to Richie. The food was great and the buffet well stocked. We enjoyed everything from fried chicken to doughnuts and delicious cocktails. For a Sunday brunch, I was surprised at how NOT noisy it was. And also, I’m not sure if was saying goodbye to 2022 or what, but as I made my second trip up to the buffet, the people around the restaurant looked happy and seemed to be genuinely enjoying themselves- I’d like to think it was the ambiance, helpful staff that pointed me to a delicious dessert I hadn’t tried, and all the rest of the great food.More infoFounding Farmers & Distillers - DC$$$$• American• Mount Vernon Square•4.2
