Once known as Branch Water Tavern, the repurposed restaurant on Shepherd near Washington is now The Federal Grill, but still spots a few old Branch Water favorites. The renovated interior and attentive service lend a quiet, dignified air to the Grill, but the fun food and cocktails keep it from being stuffy. Whether you choose the $20 lunch menu or the $35 dinner menu, look for favorites like the eggplant napoleon with homemade saag paneer and raita (one of the best vegetarian dishes in town), chicken-fried oysters with hot sauce, or the amazing Akaushi burger with white Cheddar and Berkshire bacon.
