The Federal's Vegetarian Dishes are Delicious
Being an herbivore can be boring, particularly in a less-than-progressive city like Miami. The "vegetarian option" at many establishments is a salad sans chicken or pasta with vegetables. Gag me.

But the Federal Food Drink & Provisions -- often categorized as a meat-lover's paradise -- is shedding those stereotypes. The Biscayne Boulevard eatery has an entire menu section devoted to meatless eats.
Co-owner Aniece Meinhold invited us to check out some of the veggie-friendly goods, so we sampled a few favorites. See snapshots and synopsis below.
It's worth noting that almost all items on the veggie-friendly side of the menu can be made without animal products -- so vegans have options here, too.
The colorful beet salad ($10) featured sweet pecans, mandarin orange slices, and candy-striped beets. It's paired with a yogurt dressing and goat cheese fritters with a hint of fennel. It's incredibly light and a nice palate cleanser.
