We could not leave Washington DC without indulging in a Sunday Brunch. Meredith (Jordan’s sister) suggested Founding Farmers, located only three blocks west from The White House on Pennsylvania Ave. Founding Farmers is known for sustainability and be apart of the “farm-to-table” movement, providing farm-inspired food and drink, sourcing fresh products from family farms across the United States.
There was about a 45 minute wait when we arrived. We put our name on the waiting list, but we were able to grab three seats at the bar 15 minute into our wait!!
I ordered “Drag Through the Garden” which consisted of an egg white scramble with seasonal vegetables, spinach, and white cheddar cheese with a side of fruit and wheat toast. I also had a fantastic peach bellini and I split a side of maple and pepper crusted bacon with Jordan.
The bartender was unable to tell me what vegetables were in my eggs but there seem to be some roasted carrots and summer squash and broccoli. It was very good! The maple pepper crusted bacon was also a hit.
I would like to point out that it was quite an expensive brunch. In Cleveland, mimosas and bellinis usually run between $5 and $6. Founding Farmers sells their mimosas and bellini’s are $12. Entree’s also ran a little more expensive. But I guess I should just keep in mind that I am in the countries capital!! And that the meal was definitely worth the amount spent!
If you are ever in Washington, DC- this is definitely a great place to check out! The lunch and dinner menu also looked terrific!
