The giveaway is a sneak peak of pastry chef Chris Teixeira’s new doughssants – fried layers of croissant dough made into the style of center-filled long john doughnuts – that will come in three flavors: S’mores, Apple Butter, and Pumpkin Cream Cheese.
The doughssants will go on sale to the public the following day at the West Town Bakery in River North and at West Town Bakery & Diner (1924 W Chicago Ave). The new fall flavor doughssants will retail for $4 each.
All 500 of Teixeira’s new doughssants and all 500 small cups of Passion House Coffee Roasters coffee will be given out through the walkup window outside of West Town Bakery on Ohio Street.
The West Town Bakery in River North is a part of The Fifty/50 Restaurant Group which will do a free giveaway at one of its locations every month as a way to celebrate the group heading into its sixth year of existence. October’s giveaway will be at Roots Handmade Pizza with a date and time to be announced at a later date.
