Scott Harris is getting into the doughnutgame, and in his usual style, the restaurateur is not going small. His shop, Glazed and Infused, is gearing up to open three locations this spring and summer: A walk-up window operating from the side entrance of Francesca’s Forno (1576 N Milwaukee Ave) in Wicker Park, slated to open early April; a
3,500-square-foot-seat location at 813 W Fulton Mkt in the West Loop, which will open mid-April; and a Lincoln Park spot at 929 W Armitage St near the Armitage El stop, planned for mid-June.
Who's making the handcrafted, trans fat–free doughnuts that will be filling these three locations? Pastry chefs Christine McCabe (formerly of Charlie Trotter's and Sugar) and Tom Culleeney, the latter of whom served as the head of operations and new-product development for Lettuce Entertain You's Krispy Kreme franchise on the West Coast. The team has created 10 doughnuts, half yeast doughnuts and half cake doughnuts, in flavors that range from classic (vanilla glazed) to trendy (maple-bacon long john) to nostalgic (PB&J). A different special will run each week. (Check out the full menu after the jump.)
What's to set this artisanal doughnut shop with limited hours apart from any other in the city? According to the press materials: "We are not interested in long lines...We want to get to know [customers'] likes and dislikes, be ready for their pickup and get them in and out quick so they can have a productive and positive day."
