Welcome to ‘The Fed’! Al Brown's take on an old-school NYC Jewish delicatessen, keeping the neighbourhood humming with genuinely flavoursome food, colourful chatter and a perfume of garlic, salt, spices & fat.


Think slow-cooked, hand-cut specialty meats & cured lox, bagels, sandwiches, steam kettles, fountain soda, bottomless coffee and cocktails.

No need - we don't take any so just come on in.

And just so you know, we have limited room for larger groups, 16 being the largest, which sometimes means longer wait times.

Open early and closed late, drop in and sample deli life at its most authentic. Mull a while over a bottomless cup of Joe and sample some of the classic New York Deli dishes.  Fill your kishka - tablecloths are pointless as eating ‘Deli’ is a meal of spills.

Federal Delicatessen ..... keep your fork – there’s pie.
