One of Philadelphia's greatest claims to fame (right next to inventing the cheesesteak) is being the birthplace of the highly addictive doughnuts from Federal Donuts. Thankfully for lucky New Yorkers, the City of Brotherly Love is sharing the love, for a limited time.
On September 9, for one day only, Gothamites can buy doughnuts at a pop-up inside Chefs Club NY. Michael Solomonov, the man behind Chelsea hummus operation Dizengoff, brings his delectable treats and fried-chicken sandwiches to the northern masses. There will be two doughnut options: dusted (cinnamon and brown sugar, strawberry and lavender, or orange blossom with cocoa and clove; $2 each) or glazed (chocolate-eclair, blueberry pancake or marshmallow; $3 each).
Lunchtime's fried-chicken sandwich offering is an $8 buttermilk-ranch twice-fried chicken breast with melted American cheese, dill pickles and a spicy sauce on a soft potato roll. Get em' while they're hot, or you'll have to catch the next Megabus out of the city to order them.
