In April 2011, one of Washington, DC's most prized locations, Washington Harbor, flooded and destroyed several restaurants. The least fortunate of the bunch was Farmers and Fishers (sister restaurant to the iconic Founding Farmers restaurant downtown) where damage was irreparable. Complete with farm-to-table ingredients, an expansive menu, outdoor seating with a view and an ambient private space, the water damage was a tragedy to say the least.
But 2013 is a new year on the Harbor, as the boards came off the windows and Farmers and Fishers came back to life and opened its doors with a fresh new face. Farmers Fishers Bakers, as it's now called, is conceptually similar to the late restaurant but with a few new spins. The space has been completely re-designed, still with a farmland feel (squirrel-imprinted silverware, red and white checkered tablecloths, mason jars and funky American decor), but now boasting a delightfully trendy and centrally located sushi bar and bakery to die for. The restaurant continues to partner with the North Dakota Farmers Union and prides itself on sustainable, fresh, and local ingredients.
There is something on the menu for everyone, the perfect recommendation for a mixed bunch of individuals. Choose anything from pizza to skirt steak to seafood salad and beyond. Top it off with Uncle Buck's Beignets and you're sure to leave begging for more. The vibrant, decor inspired atmosphere encourages laughs and conversation and the beautifully appointed (heated!) patio offers decadent views of the Georgetown Ice Rink in the winter, the Potomac River and the sparkling riverfront fountain.
