The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.
Slinging its trademark well done coal oven-baked pizzas, a new branch of the Florida-based chain Anthonys Coal Fired Pizza makes its Commack debut today. That brings the total to four Long Island branches, with the other three situated in Woodbury, Carle Place and Wantagh.
In addition to its traditional tomato and mozzarella pies, the chain turns out several variations, among them a standout cauliflower pizza, as well as such Italian soul food specialties as coal oven roasted wings and pork ribs.
The next Long Island openings, slated for sometime within the next year, are in Great Neck, Greenvale and Bohemia. The chains founder, Anthony Bruno, has strong ties to Long Island, having grown up in Franklin Square.
The new Commack Anthonys Coal Fired Pizza is at 6401 Jericho Tpke., in the Peppertree Commons Shopping Center, 631-858-2625.
