Dough is the Best Reason To Go To Bryant Park
As we slowly go through the food options at this year’s Bryant Park Holiday Shops, we need to stop everything and discuss something. Doughnuts. Specifically, the ones from Dough. On the 40th Street side, in a kiosk between the Southwest Porch and the ‘wichcraft ice cream/hot chocolate kiosk, lies the best little booth filled with fresh doughnut goodness. Midtowners, this is win to the nth degree.
The doughnuts have been available at Culture Espresso Bar (on 38th btw. 5+6th), but this little kiosk has a leg up. It’s offering the entire line of doughnuts. You want the regular hibiscus or earl grey? Or do you want the seasonal pumpkin or cheesecake with graham cracker crumbs?!!!! The doughnuts are around the same price as elsewhere–$3.25 each. But the light, fluffy pillows of dough make it worth the price tag. The first time I stopped by, the kiosk was on a break, but the second time, it was open and sporting a decent line. Both times I had gone in the early afternoon, so don’t be worried about losing out on the fried goodness since you were running late in the morning.
As for doughnuts I recommend, can I say all of them? I haven’t had a bad one yet though my current favorite is the hibiscus–it’s a little citrusy and floral, and has hot pink icing. The kiosk also has cookies ($2.50) and croissants ($3).
