This past weekend, my parents came to visit (yay!). One of my favorite things about Washington D.C. is the FOOD. I LOVE delicious, healthy (and not so healthy) foods that are priced well and super yummy! I took my parents to my favorite places to eat in Washington D.C. and they LOVED it all.
Founding Farmer's: Everyone LOVES Founding Farmer's. It is nestled right in the middle of Foggy Bottom and just three blocks away from the White House. It is famous for it's fresh and delicious brunches! Make sure to book a reservation at least four days before hand if you have more than two people. There is always a line outside because it is simply amazing!
My Favorite Dish: the Founding Farmer's Breakfast with Chicken Apple Sausage, Ciabatta Bread, Grits, & a side of Black Pepper Maple Bacon! YUM.
District Commons: $16 Bottomless Mimosas!! Located in Foggy Bottom near GW and less than a mile from Georgetown, District Commons has delicious breakfast and $16 Bottomless Mimosas.
My Favorite Dish: “Cast Iron Skillet” Huevos Rancheros
Beuchert's Saloon: $16 Bottomless Mimosas!! This cute and intimate Saloon is in Eastern Market, just blocks away from the Capital building. After Brunch, check out the Eastern Market with artisan gifts and delicious fruits.
