Doughnut Plant NYC

Could it be the doughnut is the new cupcake? This place has been around for quite a while and their new shop has been there a few months, so I’m a day late and a doughnut short (excuse the pun). I only became aware of them a few weeks ago when I went to a brunch at my friends’ place and one of the guests brought a selection of these doughnuts from The Doughnut Plant. We cut them all up into pieces and made a smorgasbord out of them. Mmm.

Well, I was passing by their new place on 23rd the other day and couldn’t resist. As you can see, their decor is a doughnut fantasy. Love the doughnut cushions – I want those for my place. And now about the doughnuts: they have quite a menu, and unusual things like Green Matcha Tea, and Oatmeal, and of course all sorts of other things like Valhrona Chocolate, and Square Jelly Doughnuts, which Mark, the owner invented. They make their own jelly for the doughnuts, so none of that artificially colored glue that you get in other jelly doughnuts. And they have a deliciously refreshing Blueberry Lemonade. Oona and I were fighting over the last drop. And on his website, there is a touching pictorial history of his family bakers which goes back to his grandfather. And now a photo of my favorite, Crème Brulée, in all it’s glory.
