We love welcoming spring to the nation’s capital every year, especially the chance to enjoy and celebrate our famous Cherry Blossoms, which can be found along the Tidal Basin and are surrounded by some of DC’s most visited monuments.
Our Founding Farmers teams have created a special handcrafted cocktail, the Cherry Julep, made with bourbon, mint, and cherry liqueur. The Cherry Julep is available for $12 for our in-person diners and can also be purchased with to go food for $20 for a 16 ounce bottle.
We also have a very special dessert: Double Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake with Almond Toffee Crunch. The dessert will be available throughout the festival at all of our DC-area restaurants.
From March 20 through April 11, all of our our DC-area restaurants are partnering with the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington’s Cherry Picks program to celebrate this famous flowering tree with Cherry Blossom-themed food and drink for our diners in DC and Northern Virginia.
Each year, the National Cherry Blossom Festival welcomes people from across the globe to this springtime celebration. Featuring diverse and creative programs highlighting traditional and contemporary arts and culture, the National Cherry Blossom Festival applauds our community and works to enhance our environment with year-round educational and community-based programs. This year, much of this is going to done virtually.
We hope you get a chance to see the beauty and grace of this year’s Cherry Blossoms in person, from your car window, or virtually with their live Cherry Blossom cam. We invite you to join us in our restaurants or on our patios, or pick up our Cherry Blossom-themed cocktail and dessert. As always, we recommend making a reservation.
