what was consumed: whirley pot kettle corn pot, purple and black kale salad, and simply seared sushi grade tuna ... with homemade ginger soda!
bjl told me his favorite restaurant was some place in georgetown. and so, before heading out to dulles, we stopped in for a quick and delicious bite to eat. i'm surprised i hadn't heard about ffb! so many chefs and restaurants engage in the farm-to-table "movement," and i'm glad they do!
we were only planning on a quick stay, so happily took seats at our favorite dining spot - at the bar. bjl ordered his usual (campari and soda) while i was being super indecisive about their homemade soda choices. their super delicious homemade soda choices! i went with the ginger soda and boy, was it delicious! super gingery, not at all sweet, totally refreshing. i tried to savor ever single drop, but really just chugged it down. it was far too easy.
we started our meal with ffb's version of bar nuts - bits of bacon and nuts in the midst of all the delicious kettle corn. we then moved on to kale salad, dressed just right. we topped off our meal with seared and lightly crusted tuna that sat atop heirloom tomatoes served with a side bean salad. nom nom nom nom nom nom. i don't even know where to begin to describe how fresh and delicious the tuna was, how delicious the entire meal was.
and, if you can, get a seat next to the windows. of course you should. but especially if you are at the georgetown waterfront and you have the opportunity to dine overlooking the potomac, why not? i surely will the next time i go to ffb. and i hope it's soon!
