The best place to grab a doughnut in NYC has got to be Doughnut Plant. Founder, Mark Isreal has transformed the traditional doughnut into an art form. The use of high quality ingredients and alluring flavors are what truly make Doughnut Plant doughnuts stand out. Blessed with his grandfather’s doughnut recipe, Isreal began baking in the basement of a lower east side tenement in the mid 1990s. He baked all night and during the day delivered his delicious doughnuts via bicycle to major retailers such as Dean & Deluca and Balducci's. Fast forward to the present and you have what is now a highly successful business. His story is truly inspiring. Without hesitation I can tell you that the crème brûlée doughnut is my absolute favorite with its burnt sugar glaze and delectable custard filling. There are so many unique and delicious flavors to choose from. You really can't go wrong.
