Wylie Dufresne became one of the world’s most recognizable chefs at wd~50, the Lower East Side restaurant he opened in 2003. While wd~50 and its sister restaurant, Alder, were still open, he developed a reputation for a fun, colorful style of modernist cooking marked by unexpected, sly surprises. Now he’s applying that approach to fried dough at Du’s Donuts in an airy, glass-enclosed storefront next to Williamsburg’s William Vale hotel. In typical Dufrenese style, the chef spent a lot of time researching and testing to create the perfect cake doughnut, trying out quirky flavors like a strawberries-and-cream that tastes like strawberry Nesquik. He’s applying his science food skills to the shop, freeze-drying Granny Smith apples so they taste like bespoke Jolly Ranchers. To go with the doughnuts, Dufrenese & Co. will serve coffee from Brooklyn Roasting Company, of course, as well as Rhode Island’s coffee milk, dairy mixed with coffee syrup.
