There are many reasons to love New York City and most of them involve carbohydrates. I’ve gone entire weeks living on nothing but bagels and pizza, probably much to the hazard of my long-term physical health. Damn the torpedoes, they were delicious and worth every bite. Like, what’s the point in living in the culinary capital of the free world for thousands and thousands of dollars of rent if you’re not going to enjoy the food here?
Which is why this creation from West Village’s Doughnut Project sounds so damn perfect. They mixed two A.M. staples: The Everything bagel with a doughnut. It comes to our attention with much fanfare via Gothamist. The idea is a little bit of sweet, but mostly savory: A sweet cream cheese icing mixed with all the toppings of an everything bagel, like black sesame seeds, poppy seeds, roasted garlic, and salt.
I’ve never wanted one so badly. I say this lustfully, but the reality is that all I have to do is walk a couple handful of blocks to get it.
