    Tuesday nights downstairs, you get a cornucopia of artists dancing. However, the band is what you can't miss!

    SHAME ON YOU Federal bar in NoHo. Manager Carl and security Isaac need to get that stick out of their ass. Poorly handled situation. Refused to serve us food after we spend big $ at their estab. WTF?

  • Marleine P.

    Their burgers are bar none some of the best around. Anything with their pretzel bum = yum. But their wings, Brussels sprouts, artichokes, and pretzel appetizers are also standouts. Great beer options!

    The Grilled Chokes were good but that Mac N Cheese was amazing!

    The bar towards the back is where it's at.

    The quinoa & kale salad is so so good (and I'm not a huge fan of kale). The federal burger and their fries are also super delicious.

    Downside: They no longer serve the blueberry beer. Upside: They now serve a raspberry beer instead.

    I don't even know where to begin. The lamb chops, maple tots, grilled artichoke... All so, so good!
