July 21 Where to Brunch This Weekend Near Residences on the Avenue: Founding Farmers in the IMF Building

Located just a few blocks from the White House, Founding Farmers occupies a historic farmhouse and serves its meals at community tables where lively, friendly conversation flows back and forth as people gather and mingle. If you’re looking for something a bit cozier or more private, however, don’t worry: upstairs you’ll find plenty of booth seating and small tables that are perfect for private meals.

The space itself is a unique mix of rustic and modern decoration: rough-hewn, reclaimed wood lines the walls, while ultra-modern track-style lighting illuminates the rooms. A similar commitment to both tradition and innovation is visible in the restaurant’s menu, which lists heritage dishes like skillet corn bread or chicken pot pie alongside creative combinations like ham-flecked mac and cheese and the thick-cut, grilled cauliflower steaks served with candied lemon and green beans.

If you and your friends from Residences on the Avenue are seeking a new brunch spot, make note: Founding Farmers’ Sunday brunch earns rave reviews (don’t skip the stuffed French toast or the eggs Benedict!).
