Welcome back to the derby, folks. Market favorite Migue’s Magnificent Mini Donuts is officially the first fried-dough purveyor in the elite eight, having beaten out Tabard Inn for that particular honor. Also, some news for you: Migue’s is changing its name to DC-Donuts—not to be confused with District Donuts, which will make its brick-and-mortar debut in June.

Back to our regularly scheduled programming: Next up in the derby we have Logan Circle darling Cork Market taking on Pizzeria Orso, the Falls Church favorite that features killer lemon pastries from chef Will Artley. Cork is one popular place, but Orso fans showed up in droves to close out Graffiato in round one. Be sure to vote before 5. May the best doughnuts win.
