7. DuMont Doughnuts
Dalia Jurgensen oversees the doughnut set-up at Dumont's little counter on Bedford Avenue, which fries the beignet-like puffs to order. A donut robot sends squirts of batter through a conveyor belt of oil until, finally, they reach the end as dark, often-deformed, delicious crisps with creamy-but-cooked centers. The sweet heat of the ginger-sugar is terrific, and plain ones with a side of extra-thick dulce de leche are fun to share. 314 Bedford Avenue Brooklyn

6. Pies 'n' Thighs
These big, soft, sticky confections are available at the counter in fun flavors like ginger-grapefuit or pecan (which trumps the classic cinnamon-sugar). The fancier filled doughnuts collapse like dense stars and will require careful transportation along with a serious appetite. Go for the lemon-curd-filled pistachio or rhubarb jelly. 166 South 4th Street Brooklyn

5. Bottega Falai
Iacopo Falai's classic, Italian-style doughnuts are our favorite things to grab on the go from this SoHo shop. The elegant, airy bomboloni are dredged in sugar and filled with fruity jam, pastry cream perfumed with vanilla, or lightly sweetened whipped cream. It cuts like a fine, feathery cake, which makes it easy to share, and it's full of actual flavor, not just sugar. 267 Lafayette Street

Thanks for the list! Many doughnuts to eat. Tried Dough at The Bowery Diner (Rhubarb glaze and Sugar cake) and wasn't impressed but also understand I need to go to the source to get a better taste...and then I'll probably still be a Doughnut Plant gal. Coconut yeast! Tres Leches cake!! Creme Brulee!!! Will give the others a shot (I like Peter Pan but being organicgal...have a soft spot for all things local and/or organic...especially if they taste good which I know not everything local and organic does).

If you have not tried it, please please please give the powdered creme (the yellow bavarian) donut a try at The Donut Pub, and perhaps the French Cruller (on a good day). It will sure to elevate The Donut Pub's rank a few notches, or so I hope. I agree that they are not the all around best, but a few varieties are remarkable.
