Time Out says
Too many desserts that go viral on social media fail to impress us, but this isn't the case with DŌ. The fun cookie dough treats are a dessert we could get behind, so, naturally, we invited it to hold court at Time Out Market New York. We tasted its food, reviewed the eatery and had no hesitation in recommending DŌ for a spot at the market. Here’s why:
Kristen Tomlan caused quite a stir among New York dessert lovers when she opened the first brick-and-mortar shop of her raw cookie-dough brand, DŌ in the West Village—so much so that the shop has been regularly selling out of its popular tricked-out flavors like confetti and brownie batter.
For the uninitiated: the doughs are made using pasteurized egg product and heat-treated flour, to curb any fears of salmonella run-ins, and are available in both gluten-free and vegan varieties. The confections keep in the fridge for up to three weeks (three months, if you toss 'em in the freezer) and, yes, you can actually bake them, if you're into that whole cooked-cookie thing.
Ask for one, two, or three scoops of traditional chocolate chip and sugar cookie in a cup or cone, or opt for one of the more whimsical flavors like cake batter, s'mores, and peanut butter cup. Even more over the top are the cookie dough ice cream sandwiches, sundaes, and milkshakes that will no doubt have you destined for a sugar crash. But maybe all that decadence is worth it.

Your whole life, the fear of salmonella has tainted the consumption of delicious, raw cookie dough. Introducing DO, a West Village storefront dedicated to this tasty treat. This shop currently falls into the category of one of New York’s desert darlings, so there’s a bit of a line. In fact, their website goes as far as to suggest going bright and early to reserve a confection. I’ve walked by more than a few mornings and can confirm there’s normally always people waiting but the hype has quieted down.
Onto the dishes—yum! I’ve had the signature chocolate chip and resisted the urge to use that mini shovel-like spoon to put the whole thing in my mouth after the first taste. It’s good but not too sweet. Plus, the mini size made it feel pretty guild free. IMO, just dough it.
