Great Scratch-Made Menu Choices for our Vegan & Vegetarian Guests

At Farmers & Distillers we are committed to offering all of our guests a wide variety of scratch-made food and drink, whatever their culinary preferences and requirements. This includes many vegan and vegetarian options. 

Last week, we created a new Vegan & Vegetarian menu designed to make it easier for our vegan and vegetarian friends to find their perfect meal. With a delicious array of plant-based entrées, our new menu not only includes the plant-based Impossible™ Burger, but we’re also featuring a vegetarian Impossible™ Meatloaf, served with mashed potatoes and green beans, that can be made vegan upon request. And you can choose to have an Impossible™ Patty added to one of our grain bowls. Our tasty Quinoa Grain Bowl is a mix of bulgur, wheat berries, kale, brussels sprouts, cauliflower hummus, goji berries, and coconut nut butter. Our Farro Grain Bowl is made with black lentils, carrots, roasted eggplant & mushrooms, peanut butter, cashew butter, and pistachios. Other plant-based entrée choice includes our popular Cauliflower Steak and Spaghetti Squash Pomodoro.

This new Vegan & Vegetarian menu highlights some of our favorite vegan and vegetarian options, and all of our menus have a wider range of vegan and vegetarian options. Our servers are always happy to help our guests. We can provide suggestions and make adjustments, as needed, so every dish is just right for our vegan and vegetarian guests, and for all of our diners.

Celebrating the Shiny New Apple Store with Decadent Apple Donuts

This Saturday, May 11th, marks the opening of DC’s long awaited, flagship Apple store at the historic Carnegie Library, located just blocks from Farmers & Distillers. 

Great news for locals and tourists alike, the shiny new Apple store, named the Apple Carnegie Library, is the result of a two-year restoration of our DC landmark – the Carnegie Library – creating a reimagined, modern center for learning. In addition to continuing to provide the innovative products and services that would make Apple founder and legend Steve Jobs proud, our new Apple store was designed as a space “where everyone is welcome.” In addition to a built-in DC History Center, the Apple Carnegie Library will host ongoing exhibits and programs designed to inspire and educate, including a StoryMakers Festival beginning on May 18th where local artists, photographers, filmmakers, digital artists, musicians, and more will be on hand to share their craft. The Apple Carnegie Library schedules will change daily.

A five-minute walk (or less) to Farmers & Distillers, we are welcoming our new Apple store to the neighborhood with a very special F&D Apple Donut. Inspired to celebrate all things Apple and the historic grandeur of the Carnegie Library, Chef Joe and our Pastry Chef, Chandler Raffa, crafted a decadent donut with the perfect balance of sweetness and spice. Maple-glazed on the outside, with a hit of red-hot cinnamon apple cream on the inside, we think it is the perfect way to welcome our new Apple friends and customers.

And the best part? Our Farmers & Distillers Apple donuts are FREE for Apple store shoppers!

So, if you have plans to check out the new Apple store anytime between Saturday, May 11th through Sunday, May 19th, walk the few blocks over to Farmers & Distillers, show us your Apple Carnegie Library receipt, and get our red-hot Apple Donut for free.

We’re open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or our decadent Farmers Market Buffet Brunch on Saturday and Sunday. As always, we recommend making a reservation.
