"The North Dakota Farmers Union is thrilled to celebrate the opening of the new Farmers Fishers Bakers," says Woody Barth, president of North Dakota Farmers Union.
The new restaurant will replace Farmers and Fishers, which closed due to flooding.
Farmers Fishers Bakers will be the second restaurant that North Dakota Farmers Union owns in Washington, D.C.
"The mid-Atlantic is a vital and dynamic market, and we anticipate that the tremendous reception [our first restaurant] Founding Farmers received when it opened will be duplicated for our new location," Barth says
The 9,800 square foot restaurant will seat 290 people. It is located on the waterfront. Thin and thick crust pizzas, fresh seafood entrees, big, crusty bread sandwiches and burgers, plancha-grilled meats and salads are some of the menu itesm.
All breads, pastas, dough, tortillas, sauces, marinades and ice creams will be made in house fresh daily.
The restaurant will have a section called "The Larder," an open pantry that occupies a large section of the bar area with three long farmhouse tables for up to 12 guests each. Shelves in The Larder will be filled with pickled and canned seasonal produce, jams, jellies and preserves, sauces, chutneys and other scratch-made components used in many menu items.
The restaurant will also have sushi bar where farmhouse ingredients will be blended with the flavors and cultural traditions of Asian sushi making.
The bar will offer high quality spirits, house made syrups and fresh ingredients, with a focus on classic and reinterpreted tiki style cocktails and beer cocktails. There will also be blended/frozen drinks, classic pre-prohibition cocktails, and 24 rotational craft beers on draught, with a list of beer selections displayed on a large screen monitor in the bar. For the non-imbibing guests, an extensive list of non-alcoholic beverages and "Farmacy" sodas, phosphates and egg creams, inspired by vintage drugstore fountains will be available.
