Glazed Gourmet Doughnuts, founded and operated by CIC grad Allison Smith, gets NY Mag and NY Daily News kudos!

Congrats to CIC grad Allison Smith! 

Her company, Glazed Gourmet Doughnuts, was named one of America's 100 Best Doughnut Shops by New York Magazine's "Grub Street!"
 "Because a plain doughnut is an essentially perfect canvas on which forward-thinking up-and-comers can apply their own distinct culinary sensibilities, a beloved foodstuff that is begging to be ennobled.
"Happy to do just that are new-school doughnut shops like Glazed in Charleston, Top Pot in Seattle, or the much-celebrated Federal Donuts in Philly. And yet, the gleaming counters of old-school shops will never go out of fashion, either."

The New York Daily News, in an article on Charleston and Columbia, called out Glazed a week later:
"To get a full sense of Charleston’s evolving food scene, treat yourself to a leisurely, calorie-packed walk up the Peninsula/Downtown area’s Upper King St. where practically every other storefront is a recently opened food venue. Start at Glazed (481 King St.,, where Allison Smith knocks out a mouth-watering daily assortment of doughnuts in flavors from Maple Bacon to “Irish Car Bomb,” which is filled with homemade Baileys and topped with a Guinness glaze. Get there early, as they often sell out well before closing."
