The unstoppable Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza has opened its eighth Long Island location near the Smith Haven Mall, with slightly retooled décor and a quirky Sunday brunch item that isn’t on the printed menu.
Manager Lucia Biscardi said the new Stony Brook location has 110 seats and a slightly more “modern” look than its older siblings. (There are now 70 Anthony’s along the East Coast).
On Sundays, diners can ask about an “unspoken” dish that isn’t printed on the menu, but that the kitchen is prepared to make: A pizza frittata of dough topped with eggs, peppers, onions, mozzarella and Romano cheese. “It’s popular in Florida, and some people just know about it and ask for it,” said Biscardi.
The other seven Anthony’s locations on Long Island are in Bohemia, Carle Place, Commack, Farmingdale, Great Neck, Wantagh and Woodbury.
Anthony’s in Stony Brook opens daily at 11:30 a.m. and stays open until 10 p.m. Sunday to Thursday and 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
