The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

Drivers headed northbound on Route 110 in Melville may be doing double takes as of today. That’s because Vincent’s Clam Bar of Carle Place --  the Long Island successor to the original Vincent’s of Little Italy  --  has parked a food truck just south of Costco, between Smith Street and Ruland Road. Last year, another such enterprise -- the Tandoori Truck -- occupied the same piece of land.

According to Vincent’s co-owner Tony Marisi, the mobile unit has its peddler’s and health department permits and is renting the parcel of land from Picone Realty in Farmingdale.

On the menu: New England clam chowder ($6), fried calamari ($7), Lobster bisque ($6), mini meatballs ($6; additional $3 over rigatoni), sausage and pepper hero ($8) and Italian cheese steak ($9).

Marisi said he is hoping to have the truck open year-round. Hours are Monday to Friday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Parking is roadside, right on Route 110.

For more information, call Vincent's Clam Bar,  179 Old Country Rd., Carle Place, 516-742-4577.
