THE FEDERAL FOOD DRINK & PROVISIONS5132 Biscayne Blvd Miami FL33137
Most gastropubs are more pub than gastro, but when it comes to finding cheeky, creative cuisine on your next night out with friends in Miami, look no further than the Federal Food Drink & Provisions. This Biscayne Boulevard hot spot celebrates “American integrity, ingenuity, and craftsmanship,” albeit in a strip mall, but that’s part of the delicious irony of it all. Once inside, you and your gang will be transported to another place and time. Relax into the country-cozy, Anthropologie-inspired interior of reclaimed wood and Mason jars. Here’s the rub on this gastro grub: Not every bar can boast a Jar O’ Duck, filled with crave-worthy duck rillettes, charred fluff, and candied sweet potato. Get all caught up with your crew while you knock back some Buffalo pig wings, with all the fried awesomeness of chicken wings and blue cheese sauce, only with pork. Your crowd likes it all-American? Try the fried chicken, testing your buds to see how they do with the housemade hot sauce, which is joined by buttermilk ranch dressing and pickled watermelon radish. Who’s the colonel now? You and your foodie friends, that’s who. All cheekiness aside, you can also impress your besties here with serious wine dinners from boutique labels, beer suppers with craft breweries, and special nights like Crawdad Wednesdays. The next time you’re on the hunt for an authentic gastropub experience, make a Federal case of it.
