Hump day is also crawfish day at The Federal, Food, Drink and Provisions (5132 Biscayne Blvd., Miami, 305-758-9559, TheFederalMiami.com).
From 6 to 10 p.m. Wednesdays, owners Cesar Zapata and Aniece Meinhold offer such menu items as Saffron scented crawfish fritters ($9), Momo's NoLa gumbo ($16) and The Federal’s house classic, Crawfish & Grits ($16).
They also offer a bottomless $20 per person happy hour during dinner. It’s $15 from 5 to 7 p.m.
Meinhold says “we’re thrilled to offer South Florida a fresh taste of what they’d otherwise have travel to the Gulf Coast for.” Call the restaurant for reservations. —John Tanasychuk
