The Federal Swaps Lunch For Brunch
|The Federal Food Drink & Provisions|
|Duck egg with hash, topped with crispy pig ears.|
So what else is on the menu? It's broken down into sections that cover everything from "Bits to Share" (bites they've become known for, such as the "Jar o'Duck" and "Buffalo Style Pig Wings), to "Complement'uns," like fries with gravy, tator tots and buttery grits ($6). There's a "Sweet'uns" gathering of baked goods, ranging from scones to red velvet layer cake, depending on the day ($8), and a section entirely devoted to Lake Meadow Farm egg dishes.
It's sort of the Tim Burton version of traditional brunch fare. We are already sold on the idea of a "Jackalope Benedict" ($14), which apparently combines rabbit and elk to form a sausage patty, and is then topped with bacon and a poached egg. You can also get your "wabbit" with waffles ($19), and that totally tops fried chicken in our estimation of brunch perfection. Seemingly savory and sweet, it's served with a kumquat thyme butter and smoked maple syrup. There's little doubt about how much we look forward to having some smoke in our syrup.
Bottomless mimosas are priced at $14 per person, and The Fed's Blood Mary, made with celery bitters, beer and bacon salt, is available by the jug. Brunch starts next Sunday, March 18, and is served from 11:30 to 4 p.m.
