While the seafood and appetizers are all quite good here, the donuts are where it’s at. Airy, fluffy pillows of yeasty dough, lightly covered in granulated sugar, and piped with delectable fillings.

From the “Flex Donut Collection” that consisted of atleast ten different flavors, I sampled Meyer lemon curd, sea salt caramel, and blueberry cheesecake. All three were great, but the blueberry cheesecake was my favorite of the three (although the sea salt had been touted as the most popular). We were pointed away from a S’mores filled one on the basis that other diners that night who had already tried it found it cloyingly sweet.

These donuts are so good that the dessert chef, Zac Young, opened a pop-up donut shop in Grand Central Terminal last year. Fortunately, though, these treats are on the regular menu at the restaurant and will likely not disappear anytime soon.
