Until the line to wait for cronuts in NYC eases up, I will stick to good old doughnuts! Yesterday, I was at a Content Creators event at the offices of Google New York and they served some AMAZING donuts. One of the event hostesses mentioned that they had made a special visit to Gourmet Guild Williamsburg to get the treats. After a little research, I learned that Gourmet Guild purchases their doughnuts from another Brooklyn company – Dough. I will just say that these were some of the best doughnuts that I have ever tasted. I ate two of the handmade lemon glazed ones before I forced myself to stop…although the beautiful burgundy black current and peanut brittle ones tried to tempt me.
Obviously, I’m not the only singing Dough’s praise. In fact, the Village Voice named Dough doughnuts as the best doughnuts in New York for 2012. Passion fruit and dulce de leche are two flavors that consistently receive raves. I will have to try them the next time. In any event, you can find these “gourmet” doughnuts at either of the two places below:
448 Lafayette Ave (at Franklin Ave)
Brooklyn, NY 11205
2. Gourmet Guild Williamsburg
Brooklyn, NY 11249
