Federal Donuts is the doughnut, coffee, and fried chicken place from chef Michael Solomonov and his business partner, Steven Cook (Zahav, Abe Fisher, Dizengoff, Percy Street Barbecue). Federal has four locations, plus a stand in Citizen's Bank Park. We went to the Center City location and only got the doughnuts, but they were excellent. Federal only serves cake doughnuts, and this location had six rotating varieties of pre-made "fancy donuts" and three sugar coated ones that were cooked to order (or, at least, served hot). All of the doughnuts except the chocolate use the same batter, so the primary difference is the topping/coating. Here's a story about the chicken, which also talks a little more about the doughnuts.
Dizengoff, 1625 Sansom St. Hours: 10:30 am until 4pm or sell-out. Hummusiya from Michael Solomonov (Zahav). Opened on Aug. 11, 2014 (Foobooz, picture of opening menu on Dizengoff's Facebook page). This past Saturday, I arrived at 30th St Station at lunchtime and took a cab straight to Dizengoff. The hummus at Zahav is my absolute favorite so I was eager to try Dizengoff. Attached is a picture of Saturday's menu (menu changes regularly). You order at the counter. They give you a baseball card with a number, you find a seat, and they bring you your order. There isn't a whole lot of seating. There are 4 picnic tables (2 of them are together end to end) and 2 sets of 2 stools. I had the chicken hummus. The hummus was ultra smooth just like Zahav's and had warm, seasoned, pulled chicken on top. The order came with hot, soft pita bread, 2 long thin pickles, and a cucumber and red onion salad. I loved it all. Attached is a picture. FYI, his other new place Abe Fisher is next door.
