Food News: doughnuts as big as your head, booze in Manchester, and get ready to Dash

A typical week in RVA food news: doughnuts, booze, and beer.

You know what’s better than a doughnut? Two doughnuts. You know what’s better than two doughnuts? A single doughnut that’s several times larger than your head (maybe even larger than your torso, depending on your current torso size). Sugar Shack’s latest promotion involves you taking “doughnut selfies” and tagging them with #sugarshackdonuts. If you win, will you share with the RVANews office?

This week brings us a couple of quick updates on the status of Ardent Ales. The tl;dr: they’re shooting for a late May opening date. This spot has been a long time coming, and I’m seriously stoked (and thirsty) for May / June.

Starting yesterday, My Noodle kicked off Noodle Lab Wednesdays. $10.50 ($14.50 for seafood dishes) gets you a dish that’s basically dealer’s/chef’s choice. The best part is after you gnosh then you can give feedback to the chef! It’s like Top Chef with none of the crying (but you’re still not there to make friends).

New details on what was once Cous-Cous, then The Well, and now…dun dun dun…Dash! spills the beans on the new spot by the owners of Toast and Estilo. Dash will offer a menu inspired by Toast, but fast–like, wrapped and ready to go fast. Students: get stoked!
