Bold Bite

It’s not often that a haven for hot dogs and hamburgers also sells to-die-for doughnuts, but that’s the case at Bold Bite, the Bethesda eatery co-owned by chef Alonso Roche. A graduate of L’Academie de Cuisine, Roche sells the doughnuts under a separate company, called 202 Donut Co., out of his Bethesda shop. Unlike much of the light, airy and consumable-in-a-few-bites competition, these doughnuts are well-balanced, cake-y and worth savoring. They come in a revolving list of flavors, such as Bittersweet Chocolate Toffee Crunch, Nutella and Tiramisu.
