Farm to table specialties
Farmers and Distillers is a terrific restaurant that truly caters to all pallets. My wife and I have eaten there several times, and its a relaxing but ‘hip’ place in DC. Farmer’s specializes in just what it’s name implies – Farm to table specialties. Oh, and they make their own alcohol too : ) Farmers isn’t specifically vegetarian. But they make the freshest salads and pastas – all from scratch. Starters include fried green tomatoes, chips with fresh (really fresh!) guacamole, while spaghetti squash pomodoro and cauliflower steak offer original delicious options to any vegetarian diet.
I’m a former Marine and ran the Marine Corps Marathon as my first marathon in 2010, and I’ve run it three more times since then. I’ve run a total of 10 marathons and at least 15 ultras including the JFK 50 miler and several 100 milers. After spending a few years in recovery from Lyme’s disease, I have recently been accepted into one of the world’s most difficult ultras: the Fat Dog 120. I run every race in support of a wounded warrior organization called the SemperMax Support Fund. For me, this is a personal journey. In 2004, Lt. Col. Tim Maxwell was wounded just 50 yards from me. Since then, I have focused my life on reducing wounded warrior suicides. It’s a humbling journey, and you can read more about me and my efforts on the organization’s website.
