November 9 brings the opening of Farmers Fishers Bakers, the new, revamped version of the former Farmers & Fishers in the same space at Washington Harbour. The restaurant features a reservations-only 8 seat sushi bar from chef Thomas Park, an onsite bakery and a dessert "studio". On the weekends, there will be a Farmers Market brunch. The menu items from chef Joe Goetze are unique to the restaurant, which is affiliated with both Founding Farmers properties. The menu changes twice a year. Mixologist Jon Arroyo has whipped up a Tiki-inspired cocktail menu, and the restaurant also focuses on craft beers.
The 9,500 square foot restaurant, which was designed by DC-based GrizForm Design Architects, seats about 290 people. It features more than a dozen artworks commissioned by American artists. A big focal point is the Larder, the open pantry that is stocked with items like jams, chutneys and pickles. An outdoor patio has fire pits and views of the Potomac River (as well as the development's ice rink).
