Mmm, Doughnuts: Doughnut Plant for Chelsea, Tim Horton’s for Union Square

Yesterday, Eater brought word that Tim Horton’s had opened in the old Zen Palate space in Union Square (that T.G.I. Friday’s is still to come), and today, following up on a Jeremiah’s Vanishing rumor, the Feed confirms that Doughnut Plant will open a Chelsea location, next to the Chelsea Hotel, in spring. If the remote takeout-only Lower East Side original has always intimidated you, this is good news: The 700-square-foot “doughnut lounge” (per Mark Israel) will offer an espresso bar as well as new items baked in-house. Bad news for the Donut Pub.
