Farmers, Fishers & Bakers Coming to Georgetown Waterfront

From a press release:

One year and one day after the devastating floods that destroyed Farmers & Fishers restaurant in Georgetown’s Washington Harbour, the plan has been announced to reopen an entirely new Farmers restaurant concept in the same spot, by November 2012. Farmers Restaurant Group (FRG) is prepared to start construction as early as next week, as Architecture and Design for the new concept have been completed, and the group is ready to start hiring upper management positions.

“We are thrilled that our lease has been finalized and that we are moving full steam ahead with our new Farmers concept,” said Dan Simons, concept developer and managing partner of Founding Farmers and FRG. “So many people have told us that they really missed Farmers & Fishers, so we’re confident that Farmers, Fishers & Bakers will bring them back to see what’s new, and to experience the best American-focused dining in Washington Harbour.”

    I guess a year can be a long time in some respects…please remind me what was there before the flood that is now going to be replaced or re-dressed and debuting itself as Farmers, Fishers & Bakers. If I recall correctly, I thought it was a fledgling restaurant that was redeemed by the fact of the great outdoor location on the water for a hot summer day drinking something cold. So post-flood, they now have a chance to reinvent itself?

    That space was just Farmers & Fishers, a seafood version of Founding Farmers. Looks like they’re adding a bakery (duh), which I’m excited about!

    I’d never known that a North Dakota farmers’ coop owned the restaurant, though. Good for them.

    So glad to see that some of these spaces are finally reopening. That place has been a nasty, moldy mess ever since the flood.
