The feedback from the Internet poll, from which respondents were asked, “Who is the best new restaurant in Adams Morgan 2013,” was overwhelmingly in favor for the newly established local “hot-spot,” Federal Restaurant & Lounge.  The restaurant, under the leadership of its new owner & general manager, Ari Wilder, has taken the Adams Morgan area by storm with its Scallop Nachos; a combination of seared sea scallops, house made chips, spicy avocado foam, and poached tomatoes.  Federal Lounge is quickly taking over the nightlife in Adams Morgan, as well.  With table and bottle specials downstairs in the Lounge, LED Lights from floor to ceiling and awesome vibes from resident DJ’s Vicious & Rise.
