DONUT or DOUGHNUT

100 years ago….donuts were caller “olykoek”…………that’s Dutch for “oily cake”

But now……..there’s a new kind of DOUGHNUT in  town……….

The “New York Doughnut Plant” has arrived in the Chelsea Hotel on West 23rd street.

Open for breakfast with a guilt assuaging  doughnut……..OATMEAL.

Mark Israel has been on the Lower East Side for years………..and now he’s renovated and designed his new space…….. turning it into a into a doughnut wonderland.

Tables and chairs………

Designed with a doughnut in mind.

The window bench is……………..

DOUGHNUTS……………..to sit on while you eat YOUR doughnut.

My breakfast pals and I……….ordered 12…………….for a taste test…………..and left with a hugh calorie intake…………and a few added pounds for sure.

Larger than life-size cushions cover the walls……….mimicking the actual doughnuts that are available to eat…………tho am not sure about the one that looks like a NYC baseball cap.

Wall………………the ugly black thing is a speaker.

DS and TV woofing down another………..

The sweet kid at the neighboring table………Leo……….loving his glazed Vanilla.

I went back to the selection board to choose some more………hmmmmm,,,,,,,Pistachio?  Blackout Chocolate?  Coconut Creme?

The cutie…..Dustin…….called out………”Tom, your order is ready”.

Chunks of peanuts………glaze…..blackberry jelly filling……….a SQUARE doughnut ! I ordered another !

Downtown club?  No…..it’s the bathroom………..!

Israel’s grandfather?………keeping his eye upon the donut and not upon the hole?

Ah Marilyn!  Eating her doughnut and showing off her “cupcakes”.

My name is Marilyn…………….where’s MY doughnut?
