Los Angeles might be the land of the doughnut shop, but in some fine dining restaurants, doughnuts are an elegant and delightful way to end a meal. For the past couple of years, National Doughnut Day was celebrated on June 3rd at Neal Fraser's Grace. Now, in its stead, Fraser's other eatery, BLD, is picking up the torch frying oil, and is offering a special Doughnut Day Flight next Friday.BLD's Pastry Chef Mariah Swan and Chef de Cuisine Diana Stavaridis have collaborated on the Doughnut Flight, which is big enough to share with a dining companion. The doughnuts are a play on some of BLD's most beloved regular dishes. Last year LAist's Christine Ziemba checked out a Bourbon and Doughnut pairing event at Grace, and enjoyed the treats and experience.

On the National Doughnut Day BLD Doughnut Flight:
Blueberry Ricotta Doughnut with Maple Syrup Drizzle
BBQ Pulled Pork Doughnut
Manchego and Crispy Prosciutto Fritter
Banana Cream Pie Doughnut

The celebration begins at 5pm on Friday, June 3rd. Due to the popularity of this event, dinner reservations are strongly recommended. For more information, or to make reservations, call BLD at (323)930-9744.
