Founding Farmers is a farm-owned coop self-described as having DC's first LEED/Gold certified restaurant interior, with its recycled hardwood tables and concrete bars. Moderately priced and well worth it. Breakfast today -- spinach/tomato eggs benedict and french toast, made with brioche -- was to die for. Located at 1924 Penn Ave, in the IMF building, just blocks from the Whitehouse. Here's the menu.
