If you're looking to get a head-start on that "eat less meat" New Year's resolution, the Federal is the perfect place. The Biscayne Boulevard eatery is offering an all-vegetarian tasting menu for its New Year's Eve affair.
The menu, priced at $65 per person, features a host of veggie delights, from an avocado tostada to chocolate banana s'mores.
"We decided to do a veggie option for dinner because, believe it or not, people were actually asking us to do one," co-owner Ani Meinhold says.
"Our menu is already very vegetarian-friendly because Cesar loves working with vegetables," she says of co-owner Cesar Zapata. "So it was a pretty natural move for us. Quite frankly, it's more of an honor than a chore to be a top choice for vegetarian diners."
The menu features a welcome glass of rosé; an avocado tostada with pineapple coriander relish and dehydrated strawberry as the first course; charred maduros with sweet plantain, crispy quinoa, and amaranth as the second course; corn casserole with handmade gnocchi and corn bisque as the third course; truffled grits and exotic mushrooms as the fourth course; and, for dessert, cherry sorbet or chocolate banana s'mores.
The tasting menu costs $65 per person, plus $35 for cocktail and wine pairings. They're taking reservations from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m. Call 305-758-9559 or visit .thefederalmiami.com.
