Bouchon Bakery. In the Mandarian Oriental would be preferred, just as long as I can smell when their making the doughnuts on Saturday morning...
their website reminded me of their doughnuts, only available Thursday through Saturday until they run out. Surely they'd be done by late afternoon, no? No. Still there, not as fresh, sitting out all day, waiting to be picked and eaten, not that I'd ever turn down a doughnut. According to unnamed sources, the best day is Saturday since that's when they get "the good ones", meaning Thursday and Friday's only consist of the brioche doughnut. My chocolate frosting was old and gummy, but the cream inside, oh, so creamy vanilla delicious. I MUST try these fresh, preferably tomorrow.
