The new restaurant will be on the first floor of the new development at the corner of Richmond Highway and Swann Avenue, near one of the new Inova locations. Founding Farmers offers American fare with a focus on food sourced from American farmers.

“Our DMV guests have been warm, welcoming, and so supportive since we started out almost 15 years ago,” said Co-Owner Dan Simons in a release. “We’re excited to be bringing Founding Farmers to Alexandria with our farmer-owned ethos and flavors.
