Comfort food. I could end this post right there. Founding Farmers, in the heart of Washington, D.C., has mastered the art of comfort food! There’s nothing like mama’s home-cooking in the middle of a busy city, and the crowds are there to prove it. America’s history hasn’t only influenced the clever name, but the down-to-earth menu, as well.
Brunch/Breakfast Menu Favorites:
- Shared Plates:
- Uncle Buck’s Beignets – when the waiter comes to your table with a bag full of warm, steamy beignets and a plate of homemade dipping sauces? You don’t ask questions. You just start eating.
- Peanut Butter Banana Toast – it’s your grandma’s bread and peanut butter toast taken to a next level (sorry grandma). Topped with a bit of marshmallow creme and chocolate pearls, this plate is probably something you’ll want all to yourself.
- Main Plates:
- Goat Cheese and Beet Poached Egg Hashes
- Stuffed french toast – not your typical slice of bread
- Founding Farmers Breakfast – a plate of the basics: farm fresh eggs, choice of meat, and homemade bread
Dinner/Lunch Menu Favorites:
- Appetizer: Skillet Cornbread – yep, it comes in a skillet with a side of sea salted honey butter
- Chicken pot pie – mmmm hello. Picture an inside-out pot pie: a homemade biscuit in the midst of chicken pot pie filling. Yep.
- Chicken and waffles – with a side of their famous green beans and homemade mac and cheese. Because come on, you can’t have comfort food without mac and cheese – and this mac and cheese isn’t one to miss.
