Doughnut Vault Tops Food and Wine Best Doughnuts In America List

2012_4_24Doughnut.jpg A big win for Chicago this month: the Doughnut Vault, the artisan doughnut company from Chef Brendan Sodikoff, is getting even more attention, this time from Food and Wine. Good luck getting a doughnut there after this.

Food and Wine Magazine published a list of America's Best Donuts. At the top is Doughnut Vault, Chicago's only entry. Combine that with the big win for Doughnut Vault's short film at the Chicago Food Film Fest (oh, and the millions of customers) and they are having a pretty darn good year. Other doughnut shops mentioned include Primos in Los Angeles, Doughnut Plant in New York and Voodoo Doughnut in Portland. We insist we haven't truly won until Doughnut Vault makes a doughnut beer with Goose Island.
