The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.
Behold the vampire doughnut. You can get your teeth into one at Reinwalds Bakery in Huntington.
The scary looking creation came into being because of baker Richard Reinwald's observation: Doughnuts are the new cupcakes. Lately, Reinwald said, he's seen a large increase in doughnut sales, and, concurrently, a small decline in the popularity of cupcakes.
Hence Halloween vampire doughnuts were born. These scary looking beings, with fangs of fondant, sell for $1.50 each. On Halloween, any adult who shops at the bakery in costume will get a 25 percent discount off a dozen doughnuts.
Reinwalds Bakery is at 495 New York Ave. Huntington, NY 631-424-4034, reinwaldsbakery.com
