New York NY 10002
This bakery essentially singlehandedly started the specialty donut boom thats gripping the nation. Donuts have been a part of owner Mark Isreals family for more than 100 years, and in 1994 he opened The Doughnut Plant using that same recipe his grandfather used. By building on that classic recipe, hes made a name for himself and his bakery, and hes also created a few now-legendary inventions, like the square jelly-filled, peanut butter and jelly (left), and tres leches donuts. — Dan Myers, 12/14/2012
