Well, this is a bummer. One of our favorite Spanish spots, La Churreria, has called it a day. Just a month after we got all excited about a menu makeover that brought churro cups into the mix, the three-year-old sister restaurant of neighboring Socarrat has “closed for renovations,” per a Facebook message. But don’t get it twisted, heart-shaped churro fans: the Nolita cafe isn’t coming back. An inquiry reveals the ownership will be “launching a new concept,” with details coming soon.
Yes, it’s National Donut Day, which means dough dealers everywhere are rolling out deals. Dough, for instance, is debuting its new matcha-sugar donut and offering a chance to get a year of free donuts to those who buy a box of six or more. Doughnut Plant is offering a one-day only pistachio donut, and giving out a mini cake doughnut with each order while supplies last. Buy a dozen or more donuts at Moe’s Doughs, in Greenpoint, and you’ll get four free, or you can just get a donut and a coffee for $2. And Dun-Well Doughnuts, in Bushwick, is offering a free donut with purchase of an espresso drink. But forget all that, because churro cups.
Where Valentine’s grub is concerned, I never thought my heart would stray from Doughnut Plant’s rose-petal doughnuts, but these heart-shaped churros really take the cake. And speaking of cake, La Churreria is also offering a churro cake for the V-Day season. Take a look.
