The Doughnut Project
$ | Small-batch donuts & espresso served in a compact space with psychedelic murals & chandeliers.
10 Morton St, New York, NY 10014
The Doughnut Project is the creation of Troy Neal and Leslie Polizzotto. After a chance meeting at another New York City eatery many years ago the duo have been through plenty of recipe testing and now serve up a dizzying array of delicious treats at their Morton Street location. You’ll find some unique doughnut flavors such as their Chandon sparkling rosé, Strawberry Milkshake and of course their famous Bacon Maple Bar.
$$$ | Snug, high-end boutique spotlighting sustainable, custom-made clothing for women & men.
60 Bedford St, New York, NY 10014
For me, each day holds unique excitement for my shop and brand. While we make high end custom made clothing we really strive to defy the conventional approach to luxury. As a brand we have evolved considerably over time. We used to wholesale products to stores like Barneys and Bergdof Goodman, have a showroom in Tokyo and put on runway shows.
In the last two decades we have focused on a sustainable zero waste approach to fashion. Biodegradable fabrics, natural dyes, local manufacturing, alteration and maintenance service, small production - all play an important part in how we operate. Our goal is to produce clothing that emphasizes a connection between the products, their makers and the environment, all without compromising aesthetics and quality.
$$ | Classic big-flavored Brazilian dishes like feijoada come out of a small kitchen.
72 Bedford St, New York, NY 10014
Casa is a neighborhood favorite. It’s an intimate space delivering delicious home style Brazilian comfort-food. The national dish of Brazil and often called the “soul food” of the country is Feijoada, a black bean and meat stew served with orange slices, white rice, collard greens and farofa. Top it off with a cool caipirinha on ice - Brazil's national cocktail, made with cachaça, sugar, and lime. What’s more Brazilian than sharing delicious food and drink with warm people?
