Chef Robert Teddy’s “dangerously delicious gourmet doughnut concept” has updated its arrival date in Summerlin, but twice a week, fans can now try a preliminary taste of his indulgent menu in Spring Valley.
Wicked Donuts is promising a winter 2019 debut inside a 2,622-square-foot former Jack in the Box at 9490 W. Lake Mead Blvd., styling the coffee bar with a retro rockabilly design and a menu devoid of what Teddy calls “blasphemous preservatives or artificial colors.”
The already announced house specialty will be what Teddy calls a “heavenly hybrid of classic buttery French brioche and the traditional American fluffy donut.”
A former participant on the Food Network’s Halloween Wars TV show, and previous operator of La Sugarie at the Venetian, a selection of Wicked Donuts’ wares are for sale on Fridays and Saturdays at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, at 4165 Grand Canyon Rd., a short distance from Cinnaholic and next door to the Angara India Spice Grill.
Recent choices have included the $2.75 double chocolate, a $2.50 purple pumpkin, and small, keto-friendly mini cinnamon sugar bites priced at 75 cents each. Customers who want to order a dozen or more doughnuts can place an order during the week, ready to be picked up on the weekend.
