Founding Farmers

If you have never been to Washington D.C., you’re missing out because it is one of the coolest cities. There’s so much history, iconic monuments, great restaurants, clean public transit and the Smithsonian museums.

Last February, my mom and I went on a little getaway to D.C. As always, I did some thorough investigating for our trip itinerary. In my search, I came across a cute restaurant called Founding Farmers.

We waited until the last day of our trip to check it out because we were a little directionally challenged. We underestimated how close to Founding Farmers we actually were. It was located on Pennsylvania Avenue, about a 10 minute walk from where we were staying.

 

We went there on a Monday during lunchtime and the place was popping. My Mom and I ended up snagging seats at the bar.

The bar itself was pretty cool, fully stocked with unique spirits and the bartenders were ready to make craft cocktails. There was hip vibe all around.

 

Speaking of drinks, I enjoyed a refreshing Farmers Fizz. It was an exquisite mix of Beefeaters Gin, St. Germain, Orange Bitters and Sparkling Cava. It made for a nice afternoon buzz.

For lunch, I had one of the house favorites – Fried Chicken and Waffles served with Green Beans and Mac & Cheese. Pretty much all my favorite things. I must say, Founding Farmers’ Southern cuisine was on point.

I’d like to think that we saved the best for last, ending our D.C. trip at Founding Farmers. It was truly the perfect send off!

Have you ever walked in the rain just for donuts?

Well, I kinda did. It was more like part walk in the rain, part Uber. But regardless, I did it and it was well worth it.

District: Donuts.Sliders.Brew in New Orleans is worth every calorie.

 

Although I wanted to eat all the donuts there, I gave a piece of my soul away to the Cookie Butter Brudder donut.

Oh. My. God. It was a piece of Heaven, if Heaven is smothered in cookie butter and topped with chucks of chocolate chip and straight-up chocolate cookies.

Donuts may be the signature item at District: Donut but the other menu items did not disappoint.

To accompany my donut (and add to my waistline), I tried one of their tasty Chicken Sliders.

I ordered mine with the fried chicken, sweet and spicy slaw and candied jalapeño nestled between two waffle fries. It was pure bliss!

I might have been soaked when I got to District: Donut but I certainly left there dry and with a stomach full of happiness.
