NY Spring/Summer Minutes: A Recap of Food, Events, & Things

Donuts! And More Donuts!

We were just at Doughnut Plant in Chelsea last weekend and today, my boss brought in Orwashers Donuts from the Upper East Side. Now, I’m quite picky when it comes to donuts—see my mini-review of DP here. These (kosher!) donuts—glazed and filled—didn’t disappoint.
