Sometimes DC really is a cliché of itself. Just look at its unending political- and presidential-themed restaurants.
We’ve got Lincoln Restaurant with its penny-dotted floor and Roosevelt-inspired Teddy and the Bully Bar with a monocle-made chandelier and Mount Rushmore wall. Farmers & Distillers pays homage to George Washington with artwork of Mount Vernon and America’s first president as a hipster with a man-bun. The latest? Founding Farmers, opening in Reston on April 11, tributes Thomas Jefferson. (Plume and Declaration likewise have strong Jefferson undercurrents—as “Founding Foodie,” the third President is quite popular dining room fodder.)
Really, it’s only a matter of time before someone decides to open a James Quincy Adams eatery. Or maybe a John F. Kennedy one?
