Last week, I had the pleasure of visiting The Federal Bar in North Hollywood. The place has a relaxed and fun vibe. We tried several cocktails and menu items, and the clear winners for our party were an appetizer and a side dish: the Mac N’ Cheese (with vintage cheddar, chorizo, and broccoli) and the Bacon Brussel Sprouts (with goat cheese and balsamic). We also enjoyed the Sriracha Chicken Bao but mostly stayed away from the Maple-Glazed Sweet Potato Tots, which came off way too sweet.
For our main courses, we had Buffalo Chicken Pizza, a Federal Burger, and the Fennel Braised Short Rib. They were all good options for a night out drinking in North Hollywood.
Although I’m not a beer person, I tried the Abita Purple Haze and absolutely loved it. The cocktails were strong and delicious, but a tad too sweet for me. We finished off our meal with a beer float (my first) made with Old Rasputin and Chocolate Ice Cream. It blew my mind. Thank you to our awesome waitress and everyone at Federal Bar!
