We think it goes without saying that a lot of exciting things are happening right now at The Federal. Besides its appearance on Bravo TV’s “Best New Restaurant,” The Federal is also fresh of its third anniversary and has released a new Spring inspired menu — which we got to try first hand.
Utilizing seasonal ingredients some of the new stand out dishes on the menu included the Strawberries & Straciatella Cheese topped with crispy shallots, watermelon radish and a tabasco chipotle lime vinaigrette; Avocado Uni Tostada made with black beans, basil, freeze-dried strawberries and blueberries; Charred Plantains with queso fundido, queso fresco, garden basil, serrano chile and micro cilantro; Country Corn Cakes with salmon caviar, buttermilk, herb crème fraiche, and lemon zest; and the Banana Foster with chocolate crèmeux, graham cracker dust and micro basil.
Speaking of The Federal’s TV appearance, it is one of the four Miami restaurants competing on “Best New Restaurant” with their latest episode where they compete in the show’s semi-finals airing this Wednesday, March 25 at 10 p.m.
Check out the pictures below of the new menu items and make sure to root them on this Wednesday.
