The Phuc Yea pholks---Alejandro Ortiz, Anièce Meinhold and Cesar Zapata---are gearing up for a mid-January opening of their latest, the very gastropubby, colonial American-esque sounding The Federal Food, Drink & Provisions, affectionately known as The Fed, which, says a press release, "Will undoubtedly be the type of establishment where modern day characters akin to the members of the Doors, the Ray Charles’s and the beaus of the Rat Pack can reprise their former roles and share a beer, dine to their hearts’ content and delight in hearty chuckles and spirited conversation." But enough talk. Click here for the full menu.
Menu is divided into the following categories: Bits, Potted Stuffs, Ham ‘n Cheese, Small Shares, Pot Pies, Big’uns, & Then Some and Sweetums.
"The smaller plates tout items such as Crispy Tripe dusted with bbq powder and maple syrup dipping sauce, Buffalo Pig Wings with blue cheese mousse, pickled carrots & celery, Biscuits & Gravy crowned with crispy sweetbreads and served with peas, carrots and country gravy, Crispy Pig Ears with pumpkin hash, fennel sausage and poached egg, open faced Hot Brown roasted turkey sandwich with charred tomatoes, savage shrooms, smokey Benton bacon, sauce mornay. There will also be a nightly selection of raw shellfish including freshly shucked Oysters and Clams on a half shell with bourbon maple mignonette.
A Ham ‘n Cheese selection features Pastrami Cured Fatted Duck Liver, Slow Cooked Duck with candied sweet potatoes and charred fluff, homemade Head Cheese and a rotating selection of cured meats, salamis and farmstead cheeses.
Larger dishes will feature a protein driven selection highlighting grass-fed beef, domestic lamb, cuts of heritage pork, game meat and fish. Signature dishes include, Iron Roasted Porterhouse with bone marrow, bacon onion marmalade and fatted duck liver butter, Grove Farms Grilled Lamb Chops with roasted baby fennel, beet greens and lamb reduction, Roasted Cornish Game Hen with cornbread-sage-sausage stuffing, cranberry jam and jus, and Charbroiled Fish featuring a fresh catch of the day, herb salad, pickled key limes finished with luscious California olive oil. The Short Rib Wellington Pot Pie with bacon, savage shrooms and pearl onions, Elk Chili and Lamb Burger with chow chow relish, crispy onions, aged sheep’s milk cheese on a pretzel bun.
The Sweetums’s protagonist are the unctuously, sinful Sticky Buns so sticky and rich, guests will surely order extra orders to-go. Fresh Fruit Cobblers and creamy Puddings will change frequently based on availability and seasonality and classic Pineapple Upside Down Cake rounds out the sweet selections of the menu."
