The only drawback to doughnuts is that they are not beignets. Well, guess what. At Josephine brunch, they are.

They are also somehow imbued with that ethereal beignetness — you know, the thing that makes pastries light, fluffy and perfectly pull-apartable. Dunk ’em, dip ’em, devour ’em whole — just get there before the trashlorettes start calling them something awful like “been-yo-nutz” and forming a line around the block.
