Rainbow Doughnuts on the UWS
Tomorrow, Drake- and Kardashian-approved Sugar Factory will open an 80-seat Upper West Side doughnut bar called Sugar Factory Artisanal Donuts and Coffee Bar at 1991 Broadway. The eight variations of yeast doughnuts are created by Max Santiago, a Miami pastry chef whose doughnuts drew lines when he worked at The Salty Donut, which helped launched the doughnut craze in Miami with flavors like maple bacon and creme brulee.
Today, it’s the invite-only preview party with Champagne cocktails, and a rainbow doughnut “stuffed with an Italian rainbow Doughie,” called Rainbow2 Donut as part of a collaboration between Santiago and Miami’s MdoughW. (For the record, a Doughie is a cookie dough-doughnut mash-up.) Look for more Sugar Factory doughnut shops in Gansevoort Market and elsewhere to roll out around town this year.
To kickoff the Grand Opening of our new @sugarfactorydonuts store we are super excited to announce a special collaboration with our favorite cookie cup company @mdoughw Available this one time only opening weekend from Fri July 14-Sun July 16 at our 1991 Broadway uws location!

Higher price, more searchable
Bobby Flay’s real estate guru thinks his Chelsea condo that’s been on the market for a year should be jacked up from $7 million to $7.25 million. “The strategy behind doing a price increase [is because] people who are shopping in the $12 to $10 million dollar range often set higher minimums than $7 million in their search results,” Tyler Whitman of Triplemint tells Page Six. It’s not the first time the chef has played with the price, having dropped the listing by a million dollars last year, from $8 million to $7 million.
A fifth Hungry Ghost
Hungry Ghost is opening a fifth coffee shop at 80 Dekalb Avenue in Fort Greene by September. The shop was founded by Murat Uyaroglu, a Turkish immigrant who opened his first shop in 2012 on the corner of Flatbush Avenue and 6th Avenue. He also owns Sweet Polly, a cocktail bar in the new Pacific Park neighborhood in Brooklyn.
An Alon Shaya run at Seaport Food Lab
