Astro Doughnuts is a DC mainstay that’s best known for serving fried chicken sandwiched between a donut, and now it’s open in DTLA. There’s a lot of competition on both the fried chicken and donut fronts in LA, and Astro really only comes out ahead on one of the two. (Plus, no one besides your Instagram feed is really looking to eat fried chicken and donuts together.) The chicken is fine, but the donuts (especially the creme brulee one) are pretty great. Stop in for a dozen donuts and the entire office will probably start doing your work for you.
