The Donut Diaries – Sixth Night

Each night of Hanukkah, donut blogger and connoisseur Temim Fruchter shares with us one of America’s best donuts to devour during the holiday. In case you missed the fourth and fifth night donuts click here and check back each day for a different city’s top donut.

Bomboloni, New York City

Bomboloni does not kid around. They are a serious bakery with seriously gourmet donuts – including, but not limited to, Meyer lemon, Nutella, apricot, passion fruit and fresh apple flavors. To take advantage of their six bomboloni (an Italian word for the filled pastries they peddle) for $7 deal is to feel like a curator, assembling the perfect collection. Will it be Valrhona chocolate and vanilla bean or Nutella and honey? Every donut in this place is a qualified Hanukkah candidate and their gelato’s not too shabby, either.

Hanukkah relevance: Must I spell it out?
