The Federal Food Drink & Provisions to Open January 2012

Cat's out of the bag, folks. Phuc Yea! partners Aniece Meinhold, Cesar Zapata, and newcomer Manuel Ortiz have accidentally (or not so accidentally) leaked the news of their new food baby.

The new place, called the Federal Food Drink & Provisions, will be located on NE 51st Street and Biscayne Boulevard, smack between Dunkin' Donuts and the Honey Tree. The space, (5132 Biscayne Blvd.) formerly of Canela Cafe, is set to offer new American cuisine in a modern American tavern. You know, Paul Revere rubs elbows with Jumpin' Jack Flash 21st century-style.

While the hype is continuing to build, let's see if Paul Revere actually makes a resurrected appearance for the opening in January 2012.
