The Doughnut Project

Does New York City actually have the capacity to love another doughnut spot after stalwarts such as Doughnut Plant and Dough have such fan followings?

The answer is yes – if you are doing what the folk at The Doughnut Project are doing.

Co-owners Troy Neal and Leslie Polizzotto recently opened up their “out-of-the box” spot on Morton Street where they are making small batches of handcrafted, artisanal doughnuts. What distinguishes them are the mind boggling combination of flavors along atop or within a really superb yeast doughnut.

One of the most talked about one is the “Maple Bacon Bar” which is a classic west coast flavor but this one is topped with a strip smoky crispy bacon which pairs beautifully with the soft yeast doughnut and maple glaze.

Their shocking pink “These Beets Are Dope” (Beet-Ricotta) doughnut is also one of their core flavors and what’s cool is that they use no artificial colors at all – everything is natural – so what looks good – is good!

All of this is served with a cup of Brooklyn Roasting Company great coffee – now how can you go wrong with a combination like that.


Here is some of what we ate:
