Perfectly timed for bikini and jorts season, two of the city's finest doughnut purveyors have announced plans to open new stores in Brooklyn in Manhattan. First up, Bed-Stuy's Dough, which will open its first Manhattan location northwest of Union Square at 14 West 19th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues. There's no set opening date just yet, but the crew was recently looking for doughnut makers, so things seem to be in motion and Manhattanites will be stuffing their faces with Dulce de Leche doughnuts soon enough.

Meanwhile, Manhattan-based Doughnut Plant is also stretching its wings to a different borough. The Plant announced on Twitter last night that they'd be opening their third location in Prospect Heights at 245 Flatbush Avenue at Bergen Street sometime in October of this year. There have been expansion rumors in Manhattan as well, but so far no luck for uptowners hoping for easier access to addictive, cream-filled Tres Leches doughnuts.
