The Corbin District has announced that an artisanal doughnut maker will have six-packs of the confections delivered to downtown Darien on Saturday for those who get their orders in by Wednesday. Here’s the announcement from the Corbin District:

We are proud to bring to Darien, directly from Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Du’s Donuts by chef Wylie Dufresne. Long before Wylie was aerating foie gras at his renowned New York City restaurant wd-50, he was enjoying assorted treats his great grandfather would bring home from the Ever Good Donut Shop in Rhode Island, where he was a baker. Fast forward through a decorated culinary career that has been described as “ingenious,” “full of wizardry,” and “amazement,” and Dufresne has set his mind to mastering the item that shaped some of his earliest memories, and that captures the heart of food lovers the world over: the simple, irresistible donut. We will be offering a $20 6-pack of some of our most popular flavors:


2 blueberry crumble (blueberry glaze with a blueberry crumble on top).

Demolition of some buildings in the future Corbin District in downtown Darien is expected to start in March or April, and arrangements have been made to move business tenants, Baywater Properties informed the other stores in an email Thursday morning. Buildings in the “interior” of the project — away from the Post Road and Corbin Drive, will be the first to go down. Four businesses in those buildings have arranged to move out, David Genovese, principal of Baywater, said in a message sent to town officials and news organizations. Baywater is the lead partner in the Corbin District project. “We have a plan for each of the existing retail tenants and will be mapping that out with each of them over the next few weeks,” Genovese wrote.
