    What a vibe! So much charm, outstanding food, and great service. Prices are high, but large portions. Order family style … maybe 3 items for 6 people. That would have been just about right! Love this place.

    I feel special treatment every time I go. I notified the restaurant that there was a birthday in our group, and we were served a beautiful, complimentary dessert.

    This was our first time eating there finally and it was amazing. In DC area for Vball tournament every year but can never get in. The waitstaff was great, knowledgeable especially dealing with food allergies. We started with bloody Mary’s and oysters. Oysters were so fresh and the bloody was delicious. Can’t wait to go back again.

    I travel to DC once a year and always make a point to eat at Founding Farmers. Conveniently located two blocks from the White House, it’s the perfect place to start your day of sightseeing. My kids love the hot chocolate and I look forward to the individual pot of green tea. Everything on the menu is great but make sure you choose the homemade ciabatta as your bread. Great service as always, this year the server was Anthony. I always recommend this place to friends and they’ve all commented about what a great meal they’ve had

An international city with the food chops to show for it, Washington D.C. is brimming with new restaurants, coffee houses and spirited bars. And, while tablecloth dining has it’s place here (diplomats gotta eat), so does the casual yet delicious lunch spot (interns gotta eat, too). Near the Capitol, historic eateries and classic menus are favored by many. Excellent Filipino food can be found in Columbia Heights. Near Georgetown, upscale bistros and farm-to-table spots are the order of the day, and Adams Morgan is home to many international restaurants and locally owned cafes.
