R5 Zeppoleme, Westchester’s Italian Zeppole Hotspot

Shut the front door! It’s like an Augustus Gloop fantasy. We’re talking an entire restaurant devoted to zeppole, that irresistible deep-fried Italian version of donuts. This newcomer debuted in June by the folks behind nessa and it promises traditional and ricotta zeppole (1 dozen, $10) tossed in either granulated or powdered sugars and offered with your choice of seven dipping sauces. (Look for vanilla cream, buttercream, hazlenut Nutella, biscotti, caramel, espresso dip, and lemon.) Or if you’re looking for the whole fairground experience, stop in for the savory zeppole. They come topped with veggies; bacon, provolone, and chive; or sundried tomato, basil, and Fontina (1 dozen, $14). At that price, you can even wash them down with a $3 Italian soda.
