Blognut is back in Brooklyn and has plenty of Southern Donut Adventure left to share. While we were away it seems there was prominent doughnut-coverage in the New York Times. We realize that this story is now 6 days old but just in case you missed it:
The Style section of last Sunday's Times ran a feature following Eleanor and Matthew Friedberger of the Brooklyn-based indie group the Fiery Furnaces to Telly's Tavern, a Greek restaurant in Astoria, Queens where they proceeded to eat loukoumades (Greek doughnuts). The feature failed to comment on the quality and taste of the doughnuts so Blognut will have to undertake this appraisal. We have not yet made our way to Telly's but plan to do so in the near future. I hope the doughnuts were better than their 2005 album, Rehearsing My Choir - a review of which can be found here (hi Amanda).
For a review of the New Fiery Furnaces album, Bitter Tea, a much better showing than their previous effort, click here. ...and yet another by our friend Imbidimts.
Blognut would like to thank Rod and Matt for keeping us posted on this breaking doughnut news while we were traveling.
