Brunch Season is Upon Us

Washington Wednesday is back and it's that time of year again when the people of Washington, D.C. (L.A., New York, Chicago..etc) dine out on the weekend afternoons.   The young folk of this generation tend to party a bit more and a bit harder and they need their beauty sleep.  When morning (12noon) comes, that is when they need their sustenance.  What better way to energize for the day ahead (and the next night out) than to recount the night before with your friends.

Welcome to Brunch!

Not just the "young folk" or the "city folk" partake in brunch.  Everyone does!  It has become one of the most popular things to do these days on the weekend.  Since living in Washington, D.C. for the last 2 years I have heard the word "brunch" so many times.  Let's go to brunch!  Wanna meet up for brunch?  Where's a good place to get brunch?  Even at work...I get inquires for Bridal Brunches and Birthday Brunches.

I have a fantastic Brunch option for you in Washington, D.C.  You know how the whole "Farm to Table" thing is big now?  You are going to LOVE this place.  It's called Founding Farmers.


It is located on Pennsylvania Ave, NW.


Here is a little blurb from their website and a couple awards FF has received:
We believe it is the right of all diners and food lovers to enjoy of a good “meal away from home” that is fulfilling, delicious and honest, made with ingredients from high-quality sources. We strive to source the best products seasonally and regionally whenever possible, and our meals are prepared with the utmost care and attention by our talented chefs and kitchen staff. “Strive” is an important word, because in today’s world and today’s economy, it isn’t always possible to source or buy the ideal products.
The Founding Farmers name represents a combination of ideas: it is a celebration of the land and the American family farmer; it is a nod to the founding fathers of our country, many of whom owned and farmed land that surrounds Washington, D.C.; and it is a place where true, sustainably farmed, grown and harvested American foods are brought to our guests.


Founding Farmers has an absolutely amazing menu.  Everything is so fresh and tasteful that you want to keep eating.  My mom and I went there for "brunch" a couple of years ago and absolutely enjoyed it.  If you enjoy a yummy drink with your meal, then I suggest their mimosas!  I ordered the buttermilk pancakes ~ Golden Griddled Cakes with Whipped Farm Butter.  They were amazing.  Quite possibly the best pancakes I have had.  I can't remember what mom got, but I know that neither one of us left a single bite on our plates.

Founding Farmers and become a very popular restauarant.  You really do need to make reservations there ahead of time.  I think mom and I waited about 40 minutes for our table, but it was worth it.  Not only is the food fantastic, but the ambiance is so enjoyable.  The staff is super friendly.  The guests are super friendly.  Sometimes you might get sat at a "community table."  It's a long table that multiple parties can be sat at.  It's a great way to meet new people.

If you need a place for brunch, then go check out Founding Farmers!

Happy Hump Day!
