Philadelphia’s popular fast-casual spot officially opened its doors in Wynwood this week. Federal Donuts, the comfort food mashup from chef Michael Solomonov and his business partner Steve Cook, offers an array of freshly-made gourmet donuts and Korean-style fried chicken.
Two types of donuts (“hot and fresh” and “fancy”) are made on-site daily. Rotating flavors include banana cream pie, burnt caramel, churro, triple chocolate, and blueberry pancake. There’s also made-to-order donuts that are tossed in your choice of flavored sugars and served warm.
The crispy fried chicken is also made-to-order: you can choose a whole or half chicken served naked, wet with glaze (flavors include sweet soy garlic, honey ginger, and chili garlic) or dry seasoned (with coconut curry, za’atar, and buttermilk ranch)—and every order of chicken comes with a honey donut.
The first location outside of Philly has a similar look and feel as the other FedNut shops and includes a dope floor-to-ceiling mural of chicken and donuts by Philadelphia-based contemporary artist NoseGo. This outpost will also serve a handful of beers to wash down all that fried chicken-donuty goodness, and it stays open late on weekends to accommodate the late-night scene in Wynwood.
