"my first lunch at i Ricci. I have had dinner there several times and this time didn't disappoint. I brought a friend for her first visit and she loved the beet appetizer and mushroom appetizer, as I always do. Her salmon was done perfectly and I enjoyed the linguine con vongole. Our server was attentive and very pleasant. We shared the chocolate mousse with much pleasure! The only strange part was that the matre d'i came to our table when we were seated at around 1:20 to inform us that we would need to order quickly because the kitchen would be closing up shortly. I found that unusual at that early hour and so put a tiny bit of pressure on an otherwise pleasant and relaxing lunch experience. And, sadly (but understandably), no valet parking at luncn time....."

"Founding Farmers in D.C. did not disappoint. The food was very good and the service was excellent. Our server, Sequoia, was a purer pleasure. She was helpful and her suggestions were spot on. The only problem is the quantity of wonderful choices available on the menu. I had the shrimp and grits and it was terrific. last time I had the delicious chicken and waffles.Try the cucumber cocktail - so refreshing! Oh, and don't pass on the chicken wings. They are Amazing!"

"This was my first visit and we enjoyed it. The cucumber cocktail and the Bloody Mary were delicious. A must try are the wings!! We really liked the ambiance, and check out all the quotes in the ladies' room - fun! Someone has a great sense of humor and whimsy. I will definitely go back.
One little warning though...the food was definitely on the salty side so be forewarned......"
