Doughnuts!

Following up on the anti-Dunkin' Donuts campaign, let me highlight some of the best doughnuts in NYC. At Jeremy Spector's terrific Brindle Room (one of my favorites), he has a breakfast service which he calls Wonder City Coffee and Donut Bar. Delicious pour over Plowshares coffee is the side show to the main event, his doughnuts. Here is what you need to know:

1 - He adds mashed potatoes to the dough. Don't be afraid. The result is a moist, dense and rich doughnut.

2 - They are made to order. No sitting around. They are fresh and still warm from the fryer.

3 - There are four kinds: caramel (Homer Simpson would weep), chocolate-hazelnut w/ almonds (take one piping hot doughnut, spread with Nutella and sprinkle with slivered almonds, devour), chocolate peanut butter (need I say more?) and classic powdered sugar (there is a reason it is a classic).

One suggestion and one warning. The suggestion is bring a friend so that when you try all four doughnuts you can feel moderately less guilty about it. The warning is that once you try these doughnuts you will not be able to eat a Dunkin' Donuts doughnut like substance again. I promise.

  1. I'm ready to strap on the feed bag! Next time you are in Chicago, make sure that you sample the bacon butterscotch donut (homemade) at Nightwood in Pilsen. From the town that once served as "hog butcher to the world," the bacon/butterscotch combo is delectable.
