Take Georgetown Waterfront dining back from tourist-trap restaurants with sangria in hand and a delectable swordfish steak on the table. Plant yourself beneath a khaki umbrella on the brick-lined patio at Agraria Farmers & Fishers. After a recent makeover and relaunch, Agraria Farmers & Fishers is back with a new menu that provides more than just a beautiful view of the Potomac. With today's Groupon, you get $50 worth of fresh, farm-sourced, sustainable, local, seasonal, unprocessed, Mother-Nature-friendly dishes for just $25.
The lunch and dinner menu at Agraria Farmers & Fishers features a huge selection of artful fare, from salads and small plates to pizzas, homemade pastas, hormone and antibiotic-free beef, and free-range poultry. Devotees of Founding Farmers' (Agraria's sister restaurant) fantastic Ahi tuna salad will be delighted to know that it made its way onto Agraria's new menu. Other tasty selections include the chicken, apple, and goat-cheese tacos (served with fresh corn tortillas made from hand-ground masa), mussels steamed in your choice of three broths with house ciabatta for sopping up the deliciousness, and dry-rubbed cattleman's rib eye chop (20 ozs. of certified angus beef). Pair your meal with one a handcrafted cocktail from a menu that includes fresh tiki drinks, sangrias, microbrews (Rogue, Dogfish, etc.), and organic, sustainable, eco-dynamic wines.
Agraria's dining room features exposed stone, a rich mixture of woods, intimate pedestal lighting, and crisp white table linens. Cozy up in a booth for an intimate gathering or bask in the breeze by the entrance to Agraria's patio.
The Washington Post was impressed with Agraria Farmers and Fishers' revival of classic tiki drinks like the zombie. Yelpers give Agraria a solid three stars, and the reviews keep getting better following Agraria's recent redesign:
- With the new menu, management and staff Agraria is delivering as a good place to eat at the waterfront. The the [sic] food is good and well presented, and the staff is professional and courteous. I will (in fact I have already) go again. – stuart.mackintosh, The Washington Post
- I love this restaurant and I want to move in. I have eaten here twice this week and have thought about it every day since (especially after work when I want sangria...). – Katie K., Yelp
- ...floor-to-ceiling windowed doors that open up toward the fountain at the end of Washington Harbor, it's almost like being outside... there's also an expansive patio with giant umbrellas... – Kevin L., Yelp
Agraria Farmers and Fishers was recently named Restaurant of the Year by Umbrella Connoisseur magazine. Here's what that magazine's editors had to say about Agraria on their weekly radio show, Umbrella Talk:
- Agraria's umbrellas left me very impressed. My only disappointment was that there were no umbrellas in the bathrooms.
- My server was very nice and continually offered to bring me food or drinks, which I declined in favor of just sitting under an umbrella.
- I ran into my ex-girlfriend, Paula, at Agraria. She seems to have moved on pretty quickly. I won't lie, it hurt my feelings, but on the plus side, the umbrellas kept me very cool in a stylish manner.
