Founding Farmers Serving Climate SolutionsWritten by Jason Fitzgerald
CarbonFree(r) Partner Founding Farmers is serving up our type of environmental responsibility! Located on historic Pennsylvania Ave in Washington, DC, Founding Farmers is the first LEED restaurant in the greater DC metro region, and is the first upscale-casual, full-service LEED Gold restaurant in the entire country. With an underlying philosophy to support family farms and sustainable agriculture, you can be sure your meal at Founding Farmers is as fresh, unprocessed and farmer-sourced as possible. Hospitality Design Magazine and ASID named Founding Farmers the Project Winner of the 2009 Earth-Minded Awards and the restaurant was also awarded the Grand Prize in the Restaurant/Casual category from the 2009 Association for Retail Environments Retail Design Awards. In addition to being named a "Top 50 Best New Restaurant" by Travel + Leisure this past June, the restaurant has garnered many other honors from local and regional publications. All of the awards they've received only complement the unique mix of modern and old country that blend harmoniously in the Founding Farmers' atmosphere. Farm tables, dynamic open space, and old wood are highlights that wait for you at one of DC's hottest new restaurants. Their homemade creations range from classic American traditions to great farm meals. If you're looking for a new, hip restaurant in DC that combines old and new, visit Founding Farmers to learn more or book a reservation.
