Doughnut du jour
Doughnuts have officially gone gourmet.
It’s all class at the newly opened Paulette’s where bow tied staff serve artisanal doughnuts like Root Beer Float, Blueberry Balsamic and Mango Yuzu. We love the whole '50s-vibe: back-to-basics ingredients, sea foam walls, shiny stools and a glass case featuring the daily options.
And just when you thought things couldn’t get better, they also make the best darn chicken (from $8) this side of the Don. Decadently battered and double deep-fried, it comes with your pick of dipping salts and sauces from Garam Masala to Maple Chili.
Now break out your best muumuu and mourn the demise of the cupcake.—Marianne Wisenthal
