The Founding Farmers currently taking shape in Reston, Virginia, is now scheduled to open on Wednesday, April 11, with management planning to pay homage to former President Thomas Jefferson — a founding father who also happened to be one of America’s earliest foodies.

The typically dizzying menu at the local restaurant group’s new location at 1904 Reston Metro Plaza Drive is projected to be packed with breakfast, lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch options. Farmers & Distillers in Penn Quarter also weaves a historical theme throughout its space; that year-and-some change restaurant is all about George Washington and features a mural of his home, Mount Vernon.

The latest outpost — the seventh within the burgeoning chain’s family of restaurants — will sprinkle lots of references to Monticello and Jefferson throughout the 13,000-square-foot restaurant (think: dinosaur fossil wallpaper as an ode to Jefferson being an avid collector).

Reservations are now live for Farmers Restaurant Group’s next Northern Virginia eatery.
