Federal Donuts has gotta commit to NYC for realsies one of these days. Michael Persico

How many restaurants do you know whose fans have a nickname?

 

That’s how crazy Philadelphians are about Federal Donuts, which turns out zesty Korean-style fried chicken and always-fresh doughnuts for hordes of FedNuts — and, this weekend at Chelsea Market, you.  

 

This Friday, Oct. 20, from 7-10 a.m., FedNuts chef Michael Solomonov is adding doughnuts to the menu at his popular hummus emporium Dizengoff. The doughnuts will be made to order in three flavors: Strawberry Lavender, Indian Cinnamon and Apollonia, described as an Israeli take on pumpkin spice.

 

Each doughnut is $2 and also comes with a cup of free coffee from Ninth Street Espresso. If you’d like to learn the FedNuts secrets for your own doughnut experiments, Solomonov will be signing his recently published how-to guide on making doughnuts from scratch Federal Donuts: The (Partially) True Spectacular Story. Spring for a copy ($16.99) and get a free doughnut.

 

It’s sure to be a mob scene, just as their one-day pop-up at Chef’s Club last fall was, but showing up to the office with Philly’s best doughnuts fresh from the oven should be an adequate excuse.

For a slightly less hectic atmosphere, The NoMad Bar is making three different flavors of Federal Donuts for $5 each with a drink purchase through the end of October.

The NoMad has just been named the third best bar in the entire world and the best in NYC, so doughnut or not you should swing by to raise a glass.
