    2 Ways to Enjoy DMV Summer Restaurant Week

    One of our favorite times of the summer is upon us! This year, Farmers & Distillers has two ways to celebrate Summer Restaurant Week: at our restaurant and at home   

    Beginning Monday, August 15th and going through Sunday, August 21st, 2022, Farmers & Distillers will be celebrating Metropolitan Washington Summer Restaurant Week. Our guests can put together their perfect three-course meal featuring all their favorite dishes from our lunch & dinner menu. 

    DINE-IN SUMMER RESTAURANT WEEK 

    For our restaurant guests, choose a favorite or something new from our lunch & dinner menu for your first, second, and third course. 

    If three courses sounds like a lot, and you are too stuffed from the first two courses for dessert, no problem. Our servers will be happy to give guests a gift card, so dessert is on us for your next visit to any of our locations in the DMV.  

    For the Summer Restaurant Week menu, lunch is $25 per person and for dinner is $40 per person when dining in-person. You can enjoy Summer Restaurant Week at Farmers & Distillers, as well as our other DC area locations. Selections vary by location based on each of ourlunch & dinner menus.

Made with our Founding Spirits Bourbon, it is infused with Sunstone black tea and lemon. The Sunstone Collins is available at Farmers & Distillers, as well as all of our Founding Farmers locations, and can be bottled for pick-up and delivery. 

    Summer Restaurant Week – in our restaurants, for to go, and delivery – does not include weekday breakfast or weekend breakfast and brunch. If you would like to enjoy Summer Restaurant Week on the weekend, check out the lunch & dinner hours at Farmers & Distillers or one of our other locations.

    New Veggie Burger is Our Very Best

    We have a delicious new plant-based burger. We think it is better than other veggie burgers far and wide, and if we’re being honest, we think is it the Best Veggie Burger ever.

    It is also a very wholesome choice, literally. Our super-secret recipe is made with whole grains, whole foods, and the perfect combination of veggies from farmers we know and trust, and topped with chopped cabbage and lettuce, our bread & butter pickles, tomatoes, chopped onions, muenster cheese, and our special house sauce. Like all our burgers, our Best Veggie Burger is served on our freshly baked brioche bun with french fries. We also have created a Veggie Loaf platter as well, served with mashed potatoes, roasted cauliflower and Brussels sprouts, and topped with mushroom gravy. In addition, our breakfast menu now has a Veggie Patty.

    Farmers & Distillers now has all of these vegetarian options available, and so do our sibling restaurants: Farmers Fishers Bakers and all our Founding Farmers locations. Over the years, we have offered our guests a few different plant-based burgers, including the IMPOSSIBLE™ Burger. We were the first restaurant in the DMV and King of Prussia to serve the IMPOSSIBLE™ Burger. Over the past few years, we’ve asked our guests what they like about IMPOSSIBLE and thought about what we like and don’t like know about the product. We’ve decided it’s time to drop this one exception to our “we make it ourselves from scratch” ethos.

    “The Impossible Burger was an unusual offering for us, since it is not scratch-made in our restaurants, and it comes from a lab rather than a farm or ranch,” says Co-Owner, Dan Simons. “We were intrigued by the potential of Impossible Burger, and their stated motivations about health and environment. In our company, we are always weighing how our choices impact the environment, as well as our farmer-owners and our guests. Bottom line? Factory food is factory food, no matter how you dress it up. We feel that our farmers are great stewards of the land for the long haul. Our chefs were excited to create a new plant-based offering for our vegetarian guests ­and for meat-eaters who love a great veggie burger. The fact is, this challenge is Not-Impossible, and I think when you taste our plant-based burger, you’ll agree.”

    Veggie burger lovers (and any burger lovers), join us at Farmers & Distillers for Our Best Veggie Burger.

    Join Us For Our New Breakfast Menu

    We have a new breakfast menu at Farmers & Distillers (and all our restaurants) that we are certain will be a great start to everyone’s day, whether you are one of our breakfast regulars or are new to our breakfast menu.

    You asked for some of the menu selections we only had at other restaurants to also be available and Farmers & Distillers. And we responded. The biggest news, perhaps, is that we now have Uncle Buck’s Beignets everywhere, including all Founding Farmers  and Farmers Fishers Bakers. We also have our super popular breakfast tacos, formerly only available at Farmers Fishers Bakers.

    Buttermilk Biscuits are now also available at all seven of our restaurants, as well as our famous breakfast Chicken & Waffles. Of course, we have a whole host of Things That Get Syrup, which is particularly good in our restaurant, because we only serve 100% Grade A Maple Syrup. We have a partnership with Cornell University’s Maple Program in the Adirondacks of upstate New York. So, come enjoy our real maple syrup atop our Waffles and French Toast (both classic brioche and vanilla cream-filled) with multiple additional toppings, including Maine blueberry compote, strawberries & cream, and bananas foster. Our Buttermilk Pancakes are also crowd pleasers, which come simple and delicious or order chocolate chip, Maine blueberry, and strawberries & cream.

    Other breakfast go-to’s include Egg Benedicts with traditional ham, crab cake, or spinach & tomato and expansive array of scrambles and hashes. Kids and adults alike also love our Peanut Butter Banana Toast made with our house-ground peanut butter, our marshmallow fluff, shaved chocolate, and honey-roasted peanuts.

    Our new breakfast menu has something for everyone, including breakfast cocktails made with spirits from our in-house distillery, Founding Spirits, our house-roasted coffee and espresso drinks, and fresh squeezed orange and grapefruit juice.

    Join us soon at Farmers & Distillers. We think you will agree that we have the very best breakfast in DC.
