New York City
Fany Gerson churns out yeast doughnuts in cool flavors like hibiscus, spiced chai, and blood orange, as well as traditional varieties like plain glazed. Whichever you choose, you'll find a crunchy outside and perfectly pillowy inside. Visit Gerson's Bed Stuy bakery to gaze at her glass-encased kitchen and eat doughnuts fresh from the fryer, or purchase her doughnuts at Smorgasburg, where they almost always sell out. These are bigger than most doughnuts, but they're so fluffy and light that you'll want (at least) one all to yourself.
What to Order: The brand-new black-and-white doughnut.
