Founding Farmers Review

Inside this ultramodern take on the old-school farmhouse, affordable eco-chic is the mantra. Local farms provide much of the fresh vegetables in the jam-packed salads (try the muscular Late Harvest, crowned by balsamic-roasted onions and blue cheese) and sustainable practices are used to catch every type of fish on the menu. The sheer number of offerings can make for a disorienting experience, with 16 options for pastas and flatbreads alone, but its combination of affordability and reliability is unmatched in the neighborhood. Visitors with early museum call times are also well-served by the 7 a.m. start of its top-notch breakfast. Vegans will be particularly pleased with the array of meat- and egg-free options, and cocktail lovers are advised to try the "tiki of the day" from the award-winning mixology staff.
