Would be 5 stars but this place is loud!!! Tables for two are too close together and I thought my wooden chair was going to break the whole evening - I was afraid to lean back. Our waiter (while kind, knowledgeable, and attentive) had to...More

Don't know for sure, but I doubt it. Bacon that good cannot be halal.

Founding Farmers, the Greenest Restaurant in DC, is owned by the more than 40,000 family farmers of the NDFU, serving American inspired real food and drink with an emphasis and focus on cooking from scratch. While our restaurant is supplied by hundreds of family farms everywhere, that doesn't mean we know every farm, and that doesn't mean we never have to buy product from the traditional (corporate) supply chain, but it does mean we're working hard to direct our purchasing dollars where it aligns with our values. We're serving the best food we can, made from scratch in our kitchens every day. Our innovative, American dishes are made primarily with pure ingredients honoring the farmers and their hard-earned bounty.
