Here's a combo: doughnuts and coffee and fried chicken.
The project is called Federal Donuts, and it will come together this summer in a former pizza shop at Second and Manton Streets (1219 S. Second St.), a block off Federal Street. Ten seats will be available for dine-in; it will be mostly takeout and delivery.
Concept is coffee, breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Solomonov is behind the specialties: half and whole fried chickens based on Korean fried chicken (including classic crunchy, as well as glazed varieties, such as black garlic and date molasses, and mango, pickle and passion fruit); house-cured pickles; and doughnuts (plain, glazed, and chocolate, plus seasonal specials, such as Key lime, with graham cracker streusel, vanilla cardamom custard with pistachio, brown sugar-grapefruit, chocolate blood orange cream with orange blossom).
Running the joint will be D'Ambrosio, a veteran server and bartender and writer.
