Celebrate National Jelly-Filled Donut Day in NYC

We have a secret…

Many of us in the Gray Line New York corporate office are foodies at heart.

Thankfully, we constantly receive daily tweets about local NYC foodie events!

We share many of these yummy local gems on our Facebook and Twitter accounts, so make sure to follow us there.


Tackling the New York City restaurant scene can feel slightly intimidating at first, but hopefully these tips will help steer our fellow foodies in the right direction.

On that note, did you know that today, June 8th, is National Jelly-Filled Donut Day?

(If your jaw just dropped, no worries.. ours did too.)

So, where to go for the best, mouth-watering doughnut in NYC?

That my friends, would be the Doughnut Plant.

Located in the Lower East Side and rated 4.5 out of 5 stars on Google, we promise this place is legit.

To experience love at first bite, try their extremely popular Peanut Butter Glaze Blackberry Jelly Doughnut.
