Food Finds: Dutch Monkey Doughnuts

posted on July 29, 2010 at 11:36 am

Cuteness abounds at Dutch Monkey Doughnuts. Coral walls with round chalkboard decals promote the daily specials, and shabby chic blonde wood tables with white accents add a feminine vibe to the OTP doughnut shop. However, all the well-thought-out design elements are overshadowed by the display case, where the real magic lives. Various platters and cake stands are crammed full of fried-dough creations marked with little handwritten signs that illustrate why this isn’t your average doughnut shop.

Owners Arpana Satyu and Martin Burge both hail from less-than-humble culinary origins. Satyu, a graduate of the French Culinary Institute, worked at the notable Manhattan mainstays Mesa Grill, Craft Restaurant, and Fiamma Trattoria & Bar. Burge, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, spent much of his career at Gotham Bar and Grill, Fresh (his own restaurant) and Vento, where he met Satyu.
