We were staying nearby and suggested Federal. Simple and yet elegant. We had small plates of Tuna Tartare, Ribs and endives, all excellent, and glasses of hot toddy on a chilly night, possible one of the best we have had. Very friendly.

What a wonderful lunch. I had their signature dish the fried chicken served with honey and mash potatoes and my husband had the hanger steak cooked to perfection and fries. The fixed pice lunch is $26pp & it comes with a dessert. Definitely a must.

Amazing food, drink and service. The lamb chop was phenomenal. You have to try the GGG cocktail. Subtle taste combinations that blow away your taste buds. Service is impeccable.
