f?nuts Preps For Next Week? Debut, Have A Look Inside

New, 16 comments

Last night pastry chef Waylynn Lucas (Patina, The Bazaar) removed the paper covering the windows over at her under construction faux donuts and coffee shop, f?nuts. Naturally, here's a first glimpse inside.

Sparce, without tables and chairs, the place has hints of Norman Rockwell in the form of a sleek black counter and a "fresh & hot" neon sign above the entrance into the back. A chalkboard menu above the register and display complete the look. There's a large espresso machine, and baking trays galore. Lucas and partner, voice actor Nancy Truman, are still perfecting their faux-donuts (baked, not fried), but a sample menu sounds tempting already: strawberry buttermilk, olive oil, rum, peach, and peanut butter & jelly are set to make their debut "hopefully soon." That opening date is getting closer and closer, though it missed its target of June 3 (National Doughnut Day). A press preview is set for next Monday, so we're guessing the official opening will hit later next week.
