Being an up and coming food blogger, perhaps only in my mind, I am looking to make new recipes and find unique places to eat. Well, I certainly love my friends down here because they turn me onto the best restaurants. Including this amazing restaurant Founding Farmers in Washington D.C. Located in the IMF building, this is a unique self-sustaining green restaurant that is earning a lot of attention from foodies. And before you start to wonder, there was no creepy Dominic Strauss Khan lurking in the corner.
This sustainable restaurant offers simple American food with clean fresh ingredients that make your mouth water. They also do family style seating. Meaning, if they sit you at a long table, don't be surprised if you sit next to some strangers. Word of advice, don't drool all over their food.....Instead of rambling on about how great they are, I will let the food do the talking.

(Left to Right) Bloody Mary, Pimm's Cup, Cranberry Cucumber Cooler
Sometimes after a good night with good friends, you need some refreshing drinks. I had the cranberry cucumber cooler. It is a light, tart, refreshing drink that tickles your nose with bubbles.
Ahhhmaaaazing deviled eggs
Ya, one of the eggs totally fell, it got to excited to be eaten.
They have two types of deviled eggs, you traditional and then your eggs on steroids. The gourmet ones were filled with salmon, shrimp, crab and lobster. One can never go wrong with lobster.
I suggest that you all visit Founding Farmers on Penn Ave in DC. There is quite a bit of street parking and the prices aren't too bad. It's definitely a place worth visiting with a large group of friends or family!
