Be still our hearts

The folks at Atria in New York have us swooning over their latest brainstorm. In an effort to draw people in on Monday evenings, they've created “On the Rocks,” a weekly special of unusual food-and-drink pairings. And throughout March, the theme is (wait for it, people): Scotch and doughnuts. Gourmet doughnuts (in flavors like butterscotch topped with bacon powder), three pours of premium Scotch (including the likes of Tomatin 30-year)—all for a mere $15. A cardiologist’s nightmare? Maybe. But to us, it sounds like the sweetest of dreams. Atria, 13-15 W. 54th St., New York, NY; 212-262-4600
