Doughnut Plant

I FINALLY got to Doughnut Plant this weekend. I had been meaning to go there for months, but c'est la vie. A short subway ride down to Grand St. (ah hem too short) and I was there. Doughnut Plant is small - really a take out place, with a limited flavors (its not Dunkin Donuts people). However, their flavors are unique. The blackberry jelly doughnut with peanut butter glaze sounded delicious, but it was HUGE and my blood sugar spiked just looking at it. So, I instead went for the meyer lemon doughnut (my companions got the tres leches and blackout doughnuts). The meyer lemon doughnut was slightly lemony, not overpowering, and more importantly, not overly sweet. I tried a piece of the tres leches and was glad I had chosen the meyer lemon doughnut, because I think the tres leches would have been too sugary for me.

If you itching for a doughnut, but can't make it down to Grand Street, Doughnut Plant also sells its doughnuts at other locations, like Dean & Deluca, Zabars, Citarella, Joe's Art of Coffee, Orens Daily Roast, and Agata & Valentina.
