Acclaimed Philly chef Michael Solomonov is best known for his takes on modern Israeli cuisine at his spots Zahav and Dizengoff, but there’s more in his arsenal than just hummus. Solomonov has proven to have a way with the fryer, and at his sensationally popular four-location restaurant Federal Donuts, the chef turns out immensely craveable baskets of fried chicken accompanied a light, cakey honey doughnut (no waffles here, folks). The dry-brined, twice-fried bird features a shatteringly crisp crust inspired by Korean-style fried chicken and comes slathered in the diner’s choice of chili garlic, soy garlic or honey ginger glaze.
