OTHER NOMINEES La Lucha NYC, Macbar, Mark

When your bellies are sloshing with booze, it appears the Coney Island--style boardwalk sweets at this East Village shop are your preferred sponges for liquor. It makes sense: The namesake fried dough bombs are dense enough to absorb an oil spill, with enough of their own greasy payload to coat your stomach. While you're at it, order some deep-fried Oreos, funnel cake and cannoli, too...sobriety is just around the corner. Led Zeppole 328 E 14th St between First and Second Aves (212-228-2807)
