Another one of those National something or other days. This one is Doughnut Day, and it dates back to 1938 to honor the women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I (not the soldiers themselves... back off soldiers).
Dough (Brooklyn Flea), They fry in Bed-Stuy... clever - Cafe Au Lait
Go to Williamsburg's Brooklyn Flea / Smorgasburg, and there's a long line (which I often figure is a sign of good food... or slow service) leading to a big case of shiny fried circles. After a year of trying to avoid eye contact with solid form diabetes, we broke down and had 2 of what are probably the best doughnuts we've ever eaten.
Doughnut Plant - Creme Brulee
A few months ago, one of our designer friends brought some doughnuts as a thank you for something i had nothing to do with. I gladly reap the benefits.
