\So I’m finally getting around to exploring DC (school has been kicking my behind into shape) and this weekend my roomie and I explored Georgetown. If you’ve never been to DC before, Georgetown is a super quaint part of DC with lots of shopping and restaurants. Kind of imagine an outdoor mall-with lots of high end stores and some random boutiques. Its super fun, very crazy, and expensive. As we walked around, I kept wishing it was like an outdoor outlet mall and had a map of all of the stores (cause let’s be real, I know we didn’t hit everything). I didn’t have much success shopping, but we did run in to the famous Lilly jeep and it was so much more fun than studying for Biochem. Which I probably should have been studying for-oops
So after shopping, we ate at this AMAZING place called Famers Fishers Bakers. My roomie had been recommended to eat there and told it was great, which is 100% was. We made a reservation through there website-you NEED to make one-and were pretty much seated right away.
So first off, one of the reasons why this place is so great is the food sourcing. Basically, everything they serve, they try to source from local farmers. In fact, its owned by genuine families of farmers in the North Dakota Farmers Union. So everything is organic, sustainable, delicious, and helps our economy.
Secondly, this isn’t your ordinary brunch place. Not only does it have an in house bakery, they also serve sushi and pizza. And I’m not talking about the kinda awkward, “is it safe sushi”. I mean the good stuff. They do brunch on the weekends, and then normal breakfast, lunch and dinner throughout the week.
Our Brunch Experience
So we went about 1 in the afternoon. We walk in, its PACKED. Like I’m talking about everyone is loud, happy, and full packed. We get our seats, meet our waiter (who basically does drinks, brings by the “special” items, takes away our plates), and start our adventure.
Brunch is $30 which sounds kind of hefty but is totally worth it. You get a variety of drinks like sweet and iced tea included. So we go to start the brunch buffet line. I swear there was so much variety I couldn’t even begin to decide what to eat.
- french toast with fruit toppings, whip cream, chocolate
- Fried chicken
- an omelet station with egg whites or normal eggs
- a taco station
- stir fry with shrimp, scallops, and mussels
- chips and guac
- pita and different dips-inclucind an AMAZING crab/cheese thing
- brocoli, potatoes, zucchini, and squash
- and other stuff that I know I’m forgetting
We also got brought by our waiter biscuits and jam, cinnamon rolls, and sushi.
It was so totally unique and unlike any other restaurant I’ve been to. Not to mention, everything was completely delicious. I did find out that the menu doesn’t change all that much, sometimes they’ll add new items but the staple items (which I think I listed most of them above) stay the same. However, I can definitely imagine going back to this place over and over and bringing family to eat here. I literally thought my roommate was going to have to roll me home I was so full!
If you ever get the chance to be in DC and eat here, I definitely recommend getting brunch on the weekend!
