Glazed and Infused

At 1576 N Milwaukee Avenue, I thought the Maple Bacon Long John: “the bar of golden goodness layered with real maple glaze and maple bacon” was the donut that was going to keep me coming back. It was good but then all of them were.

The genius behind this operation is Francesca’s restaurateur Scott Harris with the help of chefs Christine McCabe (Charlie Trotter’s) and Tom Culleeney (Lettuce Entertain You and Krispy Kreme) and in my opinion, is the best donut joint in Chicago. Trumps the Donut Vault by leaps and bounds and not sure who is doing the baking but I seriously need to take a lesson or two on how to make a perfect one myself.

Half the fun was getting the staff to recommend what they really liked because they loved everything. Funny thing was so did I so don’t get me near this place anytime soon. Seriously, I was totally addicted with just one bite of the lemon.

Bon Appetit!
