Founding Farmers, the Greenest Restaurant in DC, offers fresh Farm-to-Table, sustainable, American inspired true food and drink.  Our menus include classic dishes made from scratch, inspired by the heartland with sustainably farmed products, with locally sourced items and in-season vegetables and fruits whenever possible. <br /><br />Guests can gather around one of many community tables and enjoy great family dinner dishes like pot pie, pot roast, roasted chicken, big green salads, rustic farm sandwiches, soups, and rich, delectable pies and other desserts from our seasonal menus, in a comfortable modern farmhouse setting.<br /><br />The restaurant is upscale casual, which welcomes business casual dress, and dress that would be appropriate in a nice restaurant; this includes jeans and athletic wear, and warm-weather clothing, including shorts.<br />

The Cottage Chestnut Hill has it’s origin in two different lifestyles. John grew up surfing the beaches of Southern California. Laura grew up in Wellesley and is the third generation in her family to have a business in town. Our decor, service and food reflect the casualness and familiarity of So Calif and the sophistication and warmth of New England. Please take a moment to say hello on your next visit. Welcome to the Cottage! — John + Laura

"This was our 2nd visit to The Cottage. Our first experience was "okay"... good food, but slow service. We returned in the hope it would be better. Couldn't be more wrong. We were sat our reserved time, but after 20 minutes, not a single person had greeted us. It took getting up to go to the reception to finally get someone over to our table. Shocker, you'd think the 5 times our waitress stopped at their tables during those 20 minutes, she could have at least said "Hello, I'll be right with you." But, I digress... for the rest of dinner, she was incredibly perturbed. Like, it's our fault we waited 20 minutes for your non-service.
Fish plate = good. "Chef's Special" Steak = mediocre at best.
Thanks, but we won't be back."
