A barbecue pit holds court on the front deck of The Federal Food Drink & Provisions every Thursday.
In addition to grilled specialties (smoked cornish hen, St. Louis-style pork ribs) The Federal's famous fried chicken is available as always.
For fixings, you can't do better than Brussels sprouts with pickled apples, onions, molasses, and vinaigrette.
The Federal Food Drink & Provisions has welcomed the return of its annual FederalQ. Every Thursday, the charming MiMo restaurant is rolling its pit onto the front deck for a barbecue lover's feast of St. Louis-style pork ribs, smoked cornish hens, barbecue-charred shrimp, and more.
Meats are accompanied by an equally satisfying selection of sides, including The Federal's signature sweet and tangy Brussels sprouts with pickled apples, onions, molasses, and vinaigrette. A grilled creamed corn plate with a hint of spicy Mexican cheeses and a refreshing chilled watermelon soaked in lime juice round out the rest of the fixings.
And of course, The Federal's regular menu stocks plenty of summer favorites, such as brisket, slow-cooked duck, and a juicy lamb burger. The restaurant's famous fried chicken, meanwhile, is served alongside a new drunken cherry dipping sauce. Save room for dessert, particularly the daily bread pudding special, which on a recent visit was made with Krispy Kreme donuts and bourbon caramel sauce.
