and the restaurant:
"Founding Farmers offers fresh Farm-to-Table American inspired true food
and drink in a modern and eco-friendly setting. Our menus include
classic dishes made from scratch, inspired by the heartland with
sustainably farmed products, with locally sourced items and in-season
vegetables and fruits whenever possible. Guests can gather around one of
many community tables and enjoy great family dinner dishes like pot
pie, pot roast, roasted chicken, big green salads, rustic farm
sandwiches, soups, and rich, delectable pies and other desserts from our
seasonal menus, in a comfortable modern farmhouse setting."
"The restaurant's rustic greenhouse aesthetic, with exposed wood and metal beams, offers a homey welcome, as do the country-style hashes, specialty pancakes — think red velvet and carrot cake — and a take on the classic Southern fried chicken and waffles."

"Strategically located for highest visual appeal on the first floor
of the IMF building, Founding Farmers appeals to all those craving
home-spun food with a high-gloss spin."
