Get to know the true meaning of a bomboloni at East Hampton’s Nick & Toni’s. The filled donut gets its name because — unlike regular donuts that are filled from the side — a bomboloni is filled from the top and looks like a “bomb.” Fried to order, rolled in vanilla sugar and then filled with a lemon marshmallow fluff, it is served with whipped lemon ganache, graham cracker crumbles and graham cracker gelato.
