Let me start off by saying I am so happy that I have now found my absolute favorite restaurant in D.C. When dinning for my birthday recently I decided to try Founding Farmers after hearing rave reviews from everyone that has dined there

The menu is very diverse, and of all the things we ordered at the table, 99% of it exceeded our expectations. I especially like the corn bread appetizer that contained pieces of corn in it, and my entree of the slow braised beef short ribs

Pros: The ever changing menu

Cons: the wait

Founding Farmers is hands down one of my favorite restaurants in DC, their food being the major part of their winning equation, plus a unique and extensive drink menu as well as great service with every visit.

My staple here is the Southern Pan-fried Chicken, which comes with just-crispy-enough waffes, a vegetable of the day, macaroni and cheese, a sauce for the chicken and maple syrup. It's practically a buffet on a plate but the seasoning on the chicken and their creamy mac n' cheese just makes you eat until the plate is licked clean.

I love their desserts, like their rich Red Velvet Cake (served with Vanilla ice cream - awesome combo). However, I was disappointed in their to-go cookies. For $5, you get 6 fairly large cookies, but they weren't any better quality than what I can get at Safeway. I'll stick to ordering dessert in-house from now on.

FF is great for just drinks and apps too - I've had their apple, brie and onion jam flatbread to share and it is wonderfully light yet flavorful, and I love that I can easily get a Pimm's Cup or a drunken Arnold Palmer here. I'd definitely suggest FF for casual dinners with friends or a date.

Pros: diverse menu, unique cocktails, nice service

Cons: long waits for tables, some desserts are a miss

The name says it all. Just blocks from the house of our founders (the White House, that is), sits this modern-day approximation of farmhouse. The downstairs dining room has the expected rough-hewn farm tables but also cheeky touches like…
