Last night, our MoCo’s Founding Farmers team joined other award-winning local businesses for the 4th Annual Best of Bethesda party. Hosted by Bethesda Magazine, this annual celebration showcases what their readers and editors have voted as the best places around town to eat and drink, to exercise, to shop, to take their kids, and more.
Guests come from all over to experience our Chicken & Waffles, and feedback continues to suggest that this dish is a restaurant favorite. We have to agree. This is comfort food at its tastiest, or as Chef Joe likes to say, “food that gives you a hug.” A perfect combination of sweet and savory, it’s hard not to love this soulful, Southern-inspired meal, which is good because it wasn’t the easiest recipe to develop.
It shouldn’t surprise anyone who knows Farmers Restaurant Group that when we decided to create a unique, proprietary coffee blend for our restaurants, we wanted to work with an independent local roaster who not only knew a lot about coffee, but one that had a knack for interesting, tasty blends.
It has been another exciting year partnering and raising awareness about honey bees with Sweet Virginia! Sweet Virginia, located nearby in Nokesville, VA, is a non-profit organization with a mission to inspire and educate children about the lifecycle of honey bees and the critical role they play in pollinating plants, fruits, and vegetables, and the overall positive (and much needed!) impact they have on our environment.
Exciting news for Farmers Restaurant Group! We are thrilled to announce the newest addition to our collection of farmer-owned restaurants, Farmers & Distillers (600 Massachusetts Avenue), is set to open in November of 2016!
One of DC’s most buzzed about summer events is right around the corner: Restaurant Week.
Each year, participating restaurants welcome guests to not only enjoy specialized lunch and dinner menus, but to also create a memorable experience for all.
Our Founding Farmers Proprietary line of Beverages is growing! Introducing Virginia Vines Rosé.
A lovely, light rosé handcrafted in Madison, VA by our very own Beverage Director Jon Arroyo in conjunction with the talented team of vintners at Early Mountain Vineyards, Virginia Vines Rosé is meant to be enjoyed as an accompaniment to our Founding Farmers food or all on its own.
The planet matters, so find ways to do more good and less harm.
A mantra that filters through all we do.
Our food comes from American family farms and purveyors we trust, and is cooked from scratch every day.
