THE FEDERAL LETS PATRONS STEAK CLAIMS EARLY ON 50-DAY DRY-AGED MANHATTAN STRIP
Rare Treat Will Delight Connoisseur Carnivores
ATLANTA (April 14, 2017) – Acclaimed Atlanta chefs Shaun Doty and Lance Gummere have a tender spot for their carnivore customers. That’s why the two, who recently opened The Federalin Midtown with a selection of steakhouse traditions on the menu, are working with Buckhead Beef to dry age their 16 oz. certified black Angus steaks for an unheard-of 50 days.
Now available, the Crescent Avenue restaurant offers guests an opportunity to taste this 50-day dry-aged Manhattan strip steak ($68) on their next dinner visit. The Manhattan is a premium lean cut known for its marbling, tenderness and flavor. Quantities are extremely limited.
When dry aging, beef is placed in a carefully controlled environment that offers cool temperatures and relatively high humidity. This process breaks down enzymes while allowing excess moisture to evaporate, which results in very concentrated and complex flavors.
“Most restaurants dry age their beef for an average of 28 days,” says Doty. “Our 50-day dry-aged steaks are going to have even more intense flavor, making it a meal to remember and a rare treat for steak connoisseurs.”
The Federal is located at 1050 Crescent Avenue between 11th and 12th Streets and serves weekday breakfast and lunch, dinner Tuesday through Saturday and brunch Saturday-Sunday. Reservations may be made via OpenTable. Two-hour validated parking is available next to the restaurant in the 1010 Midtown Parking deck, and additional paid parking is on Crescent Avenue. Valet parking is offered at the corner of 11th and Crescent Avenue Thursday through Saturday. For additional information, call 404-343-3857 or visit thefederalatl.com.
