What: New American
Why: Prospect Heights was delighted to see 606 R&D show up on Vanderbilt Ave. We're not sure how they do it, but aside from a beautiful brunch, City Bakery alum Chefs Sara Dima & Ilena Rosen, make donuts that sell out on a Sunday before you have a chance to buy the morning paper. In fact they have a Kickstarter project to fund a new donut machine! Ask them nicely and you may be in time for a hot batch, fresh out of the oven, that melt in your mouth as you people-watch the early hours away.
606 R&D, 606 Vanderbilt Avenue, (between St. Marks Avenue and Prospect Place); 718-230-0125.
