Doughnut Plant

    For the first few years after starting Doughnut Plant in 1994, Mark Isreal would spend laborious nights baking in the basement of a Lower East Side tenement building. Come morning, he would hop on his bike and deliver the goods to coffee shops all over New York City. Mark was able to win over the notoriously demanding New York food crowd by using a doughnut recipe handed down from his grandfather Herman, and by creating his own fresh fruit glazes. In 2000, Mark opened a store on Grand Street, thereby giving the Manhattan doughnut scene a serious upgrade. Doughnut Plant has the distinction of being one of the first places to specialize in gourmet, artisanal doughnuts. Whether glazed, jelly-filled or dusted with roasted nuts, the doughnuts are always fresh and made with seasonal ingredients. The same goes for the cinnamon buns and “churros,” an elongated Mexican style of doughnut. These days, Doughnut Plant also has a coffeehouse-style shop located next to the Hotel Chelsea and several outposts in Tokyo. Yes, Doughnut Plant is big in Japan, but it's pretty popular over here too.Show lessRead more
