New Restaurant for Washington Harbour

April 19, 2012

The North Dakota Farmers Union and Farmers Restaurant Group (FRG) announced Thursday plans to open Farmers, Fishers & Bakers in late fall 2012.

The totally new restaurant will replace Farmer & Fishers, which was destroyed a year ago in the floods. Construction could start as early as next week.

“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.”
