I'm really excited that Rachel of Hello, Chelly and I have teamed up once more to bring you a brand spanking new collaboration that involves two of my favorite things - New York City and food. We're proud to introduce Table for Two, where the two of us will be highlighting restaurants and dessert spots in New York City. You'll be hearing our personal opinions on the place and the food, as well as where you can go to try it out for yourself.
For our inaugural edition of Table for Two, Rachel & I had dinner at Burger & Lobster (and you can read all about that on Rachel's blog) and then finished off the night with dessert at Dough, which is personally one of my favorite doughnut places in New York City.
We paid a visit to the Flatiron branch of Dough, a branch that only opened in October 2014. It's a tiny little place with lots of natural brick walls, a long wooden table and chairs where people can sit while they eat doughnuts and have coffee, and a little barstool type situation right by the window. Their simple set-up is in tandem with their classic doughnut selections, coffee choices and decoration.
In case you hadn't guessed, I really love their doughnuts - and Rachel does too! They make their doughnuts on a regular basis throughout any given day, so you're always guaranteed to be having something fresh from the oven. Unlike majority of the doughnuts I've tried from other places, the size of these doughnuts are pretty darn substantial. I usually eat half in one sitting, and save the other half for later (which is what happened when we visited)! They have a variety of flavors ranging from the classic (glazed, cinnamon sugar and chocolate cocoa nib, to name a few) to the more adventurous or sweet (hibiscus, passion fruit, mocha-almond crunch, among the many) to the seasonal choices. I went with a plain glazed, which is my favorite from them, and paired it with a latte. (The coffee they offer in their Flatiron branch is actually Intelligentsia Coffee, and I'm particularly fond of their lattes and iced coffees in general.)
I absolutely love Dough, and will continue to frequent their shop, whether as a random snack stopover, an early morning breakfast stop or a dessert option on any given day. The price is right for their doughnuts, considering the size and taste! You can find Dough on 14 W 19th St. (at 5th Ave.), as well as in City Kitchen on 700 8th Avenue (at 44th St.) and UrbanSpace Vanderbilt on 230 Park Ave (at 45th St.).
