Farmers & Distillers is DC’s Best New American Restaurant

Farmers & Distillers wins Best New American Restaurant in Washington City Paper DC’s Best Readers Pick. Sibling to the ever-popular Founding Farmers DC, which was awarded DC’s Best Downtown Lunch and Best Bloody Mary, we are delighted Farmers & Distillers was chosen directly by the readers who live, work, and dine in the DC metro area as the DMV’s favorite New American Restaurant.

Inspired by our first president, our diverse menu has a wide range of classic American dishes from our Baby Macs, Shake & Fries to F&D Shrimp & Grits to Chicken-Fried Steak & Distillers Donut. We also have other choices inspired by nearby Chinatown and the history of our location in Mt Vernon Square that give our guests a whole lot more tasty options.

Farmers & Distillers houses a micro-batch distillery you can see from our bar, Founding Spirits, where we are always busy distilling our award-winning craft vodka, American whiskey, and many other fine spirits made of grains and botanicals sourced from American family farms. Our craft cocktail program features our small-batch spirits and includes a great gathering of American-inspired drinks, such as the Constitution Royale, How Jefferson Woulda Liked It, and our Mt Vernon Cocktail.

So, whether you are looking for a full meal or just a great drink, stop by Farmers & Distillers to see what your neighbors are calling DC’s Best New American Restaurant. If possible, we recommend making a reservation.
