DC Lunch/Dinner Menu


Founding Farmers Restaurant Washington DC Lunch & Dinner Menu

Hungry for one of the best lunch and best dinner places in Washington, D.C.? Join us at Founding Farmers DC, located near the White House in Foggy Bottom, for some delicious food made from scratch using ingredients primarily sourced from family farms across the U.S. We start serving our lunch and dinner menu at 11:00am on weekdays and 2:00pm on weekends. (We also serve weekday breakfast and weekend brunch beforehand.)

Beloved by both locals and tourists alike, our farmer-owned restaurant is the most booked restaurant on OpenTable in the nation. Whether you’re finishing up a day of meetings at the International Monetary Fund, on the Hill, or seeking respite after touring the White House, the National Mall, and the Lincoln Memorial, celebrating a graduation from GWU, or simply taking a night off from the kids, you are sure to find something to love on our lunch and dinner menu.

Start off your meal with our famous Skillet Cornbread and Glazed Bacon Lollis. Then, order one of our signature dishes, such as Chicken Pot Pie, Shrimp & Grits, Andouille, or Rotisserie Chicken. Or go straight for the best Chicken & Waffles in Washington, D.C. If you’re in the mood for something from the sea, try our Crab Cakes; Fish, Chips & Beer; or our Glazed Cedar Plank Salmon. Our menu also features handmade pastas such as our Lobster Macaroni & Cheese, as well as a variety of sandwiches and hamburgers, like our delicious Avocado Bacon Burger and meatless Impossible Burger that is made entirely from plants for people who love meat. If you’re in the mood for lighter fare, check out our wide selection of fresh salads and soups.

If you’re vegetarian or simply want to stick to meatless options, we’ve got you covered with our Mushroom Swiss Reuben or Cauliflower Steak & Risotto.  

Maybe you’re just looking for a place to get a great drink in DC? We have you covered there too. We have used our culinary know-how to develop a full menu of craft cocktails made from scratch, all the way down to our booze. We offer a full selection of proprietary beverages, including our very own house-made spirits and wines. We also have scratch-made fountain sodas and juice blends that we cold-press daily.
