The Late Night Federal express

Federal Delicatessen welcomes East Coast American classics to their new late night menu.

Finally… Aucklanders’ wait for decent, original Buffalo wings is over.  We’re thrilled to discover that it’s the team at Al Brown’s Federal Delicatessen who have answered our calls. With the launch of their new Late Shift menu we’re motivated mainly by the promise of the championed American classic – spicy hot Buffalo wings in all their finger licking glory.

The Late Shift at The Fed runs from Thursday through Saturday, 11pm to 1am. It caters for hungry, late night customers who want to avoid the fluorescent-lit fast food joints and instead enjoy their meal with a cocktail in hand and a friendly waiter at their service. Because who ever said a late night meal can’t be refined? At The Fed, they have honed their offerings to feature the best of their everyday menu along with several, recently perfected additions.

Along with the crispy, spicy and decadent Buffalo wings, we also loved the NYC style Street Dog and the Chicken Hoagie. Both provide the perfect snack, while the 2lb Buffalo wings are best shared around the table with friends (friends who don’t mind seeing you with wing sauce on your face, that is).

We recommend you get there quick to learn for yourself what all of the fuss is about. Whether you’re after a meal at the end of a long night of work or looking for a late night snack after an evening on the cocktails, the new Late Shift menu at The Fed should be your one-stop-shop when hunger strikes in the wee hours.

Open 7 days, 7am til late
