Bombolini at Il Buco
I stopped in after shopping at the Japanese meat market a few stores down and had their bombolini. It was so good, so excellent that I will break a rule and recommend it before three tries. Stop in mid bite fresh feather light fried with a soft skin, wonderful texture and flavor inside. No custard or jam filling and as much as I love those here I didn't miss them. One of the stellar donuts of my life
Today they were out of Bombolini, so I tried the seasonal fruit Crostata which was sad thing, dull, muted fruit flavor on a dough so near stale in flavor and texture that I asked if it was fresh. The nice counter man suggested the lush white chocolate brioche which was fine. I'll hold out for the bobmolini.
