Oh maaaannnn…it’s time to get your American on and visit The Federal Delicatessen, better known as the ‘The Fed’. This is Al Brown’s take on an old-school NYC Jewish delicatessen and it does not disappoint. The Fed has retro décor, waitresses in vintage dresses and a menu that screams ‘America’. Think pastrami, poutine and pumpkin pie (or NY cheesecake). Wash it all down with a coffee or, enjoy a stiffer drink—beer, wine, cocktails, it’s all here. The Fed is one of Auckland’s best restaurants, and with no option to book, be prepared to wait for a seat.
