Flex Donuts Pops Up in Grand Central Terminal Again
Lauren Shockey Doughnuts galore from Flex Doughnuts
Flex Doughnuts, the sweet counterpart to Flex Mussels from pastry chef Zac Young, has returned once again to Grand Central Station. Like its pop-up last year, Flex Doughnuts will be located in the Zócalo outpost in the food court on the dining concourse level and will be selling sweets through December. Needless to say, we went and checked out the goods.
Both yeast and cake doughnuts are available ($2-$3.50), plus a selection of the doughnut holes that Young is famous for. Needless to say, we tried a little bit of everything.
Lauren Shockey Pecan pie doughnut
The first was a glazed pecan pie doughnut. It was topped with chopped nuts and glazed with icing. It was good, though not out-of-this-world.
Lauren Shockey Pumpkin doughnut
Better was the pumpkin cake doughnut, which was nicely spiced and topped with dried cranberries and white chocolate shavings, although we would have liked the topping to have covered the whole top, rather than be sectioned off on different sides.
