Foggy Bottom

Founding Farmers


1924 Pennsylvania Ave. NW,
United States,

Green to the extreme, this 21st-century approximation of a farmhouse just blocks from the White House features menus printed on recycled paper and award-winning CORE architecture. Beloved for comfort-food favorites like its Southern pan-fried chicken, Founding Fathers serves an organic American menu in a multi-level space dramatically accented by a sweeping staircase. Winning design elements include the use of old wood and community-style farm tables on the first level, along with silo-shaped booths in the intimate second-floor dining area.
