Great Bars 2013: Founding Farmers (Potomac)

It’s like drinking inside a farmer’s larder. At this outpost of
the farm-to-table eatery, you’ll find a cozy bar lined with colorful
benches and jars of squash, tomatoes, and other garden yields. The
emphasis on seasonal and local extends to drinks, and fresh-pressed
juices, infused liquors, and house-made sodas inform an extensive list of
refreshing cocktails (though no-frills booze-lovers can find martinis and
other potent pours). Top-notch bar snacks such as deviled eggs and
soy-glazed wings sprinkled with ginger and scallions ensure that you won’t
drink on an empty stomach. Insider tip: Head bartender Jaclyn Beasley
plays with off-menu specials—a Vieux Carré among them—for those in the
know. Open daily.
