A Taste of Washington DC: Founding Farmers
A couple months ago I was lucky enough to spend a lovely weekend with one of my good friends from home in Washington, D.C. Washington is one of those cities in which I can easily see myself living. I’m obsessed with the Georgetown area and the embassy houses, and I feel like it is a pretty manageable city. We spent an entire day basking in the sun on the lawn by the Lincoln Memorial, walking around Georgetown, people watching in parks and munching on delicious eats; it was a glorious day and the weather was impeccable. We started off our day with a decent walk to brunch from the Ritz Carlton Georgetown to Founding Farmers.
I’d heard a lot about Founding Farmers from friends who have lived in or visited D.C. over the years, and it certainly lives up to the hype. I had to spend about a half hour looking at the menu because I simply couldn’t decide what to get! I needed to load up because I was running my half marathon the next day and didn’t want to eat much the night before, so I went with something heavy: Fried chicken, eggs and waffles. It was the classic chicken and waffles with the added twist that solved my dilema of choosing between eggs and something sweet at breakfast. The waffle was so airy and light that it actually didn’t weigh me down as much as I imagined. Krissi got the bananas forster stuffed french toast. Both were outrageous, but so delicious. Highly recommended.
