Oh, we are close now, friends. At long last, we’re just a few bouts away from determining a winner in the Great Doughnut Derby. On Friday, Falls Church Neapolitan pie spot Pizzeria Orso scored the first spot in the final four, squeezing out Migue’s Magnificent.

Now it’s time to pick between Dupont restaurant the Palm—serving suit-clad power brokers those beloved bags of mini doughnuts—and newcomer Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken, which recently debuted its crispy goods in Metro Center. As usual, you have to vote before 5 PM.
