A new entry onto the Atlanta dining scene is already getting national attention.
Website Thrillist named The Federal's oxtail French onion soup to its list of 17 new bucket list-worthy dishes.
Thrillist said of the soup, "It takes everything about the dish to the next level: Tender chunks of oxtail commingle with plenty of cave-aged Gruyere and onion to create a gooey, savory masterpiece that makes soup for dinner an exciting proposition."
Chef Shaun Doty opened The Federal in Midtown in November in the place of his previous restaurant, Bantam + Biddy. The menu is variously described as inspired by “French cuisine” and “the traditional American steakhouse."
