Food and drink at Founding Farmers was delicious! I demoted it from excellent to great because at this location they only have two vegan option, boo! :( That being said, the two options they had were amazing!

I had the veg 'meat'loaf. It came with mashed potatoes and broccolini. Both of my sides tasted really good, though the broccolini didn't have seasoning, just steamed. There were crunchy onions on top of the entire thing and they were awesome! Tony had the 'Bacon' Burger which was also delicious. It has 'Louie' sauce on it which was like a BBQ sauce. Holy Deliciousness. His came with an arugula salad. I didn't taste his salad but he said the dressing cut the bitterness of the arugula and that it was really good. I think the Bacon Burger patty is the same as the veg meatloaf. The texture of the meatloaf was good, it's made with pieces of vegetables not any type of 'fake meat'.

Our waiter offered us their strawberry-lemonade sorbet only to find that they were out, that was a bit of a bummer but it was the end of the night. I wish they had some type of vegan baked good.

Drinks were fabulous. Tony had an IPA and I had The Constitution. Try The Constitution, it's amazing.

They have another restaurant called Farmers Fishers Bakers and their menu had, I think, six or eight vegan options. I'd love to try that place too, I've heard the white bean patties are the things dreams are made of.
