Top Pot co-founder Mark Klebeck tells Zagat he's going to add cocktails to his flagship doughnut emporium on 5th Ave. It's something he's been talking about about since 2011. Maybe this time he's serious (typed with hopeful fingers)?
He also mentioned back in January that he'd be opening Top Pot's first franchise location in NYC this year. But those plans have been pushed back to 2014 (probably), because the Top Pot team has "been challenged by the price of real estate." Additionally, Klebeck tells Zagat more dessert-like doughnuts will be added to the Top Pot roster, "elegant goodies like the lemon ricotta bismark with toasted hazelnuts" and other recipes pulled straight from the Top Pot cookbook.
As an interesting sidenote, Klebeck mentions a documentary he's working on about the aged eggnog they make at Sun Liquor. He's hoping to get it into the Food Film Fest, "which I'd love to get to come to Seattle."
