Farmers & Distillers Coming Fall of 2016!


Exciting news for Farmers Restaurant Group! We are thrilled to announce that our newest addition to our collection of farmer-owned restaurants, Farmers & Distillers  (600 Massachusetts Avenue), is set to open in November of 2016!

Farmers & Distillers will embody the true enterprising spirit of the original founding father, George Washington.  He experimented with progressive farming techniques at his Mount Vernon estate, and established what became the largest distillery in America at the turn of the 18th century. 

Farmers & Distillers will showcase house-made spirits, as well as Founding Farmers’ proprietary line of Rye Whisky and GinFRG proprietary wines from vineyards in Virginia and New York, and 12 beer taps that will feature only DC, Maryland and Virginia brewed beers.

Every decision of Farmers & Distillers was pulled through the filter of “What would George do?” be it with flavor, plate ware, cooking technique, or design. From Sticky Pork Riblets to Donut Ice Cream Sandwiches, the menu truly will have something for everyone. 

See the press release to learn more!
