Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza opens in Wantagh
Another Anthony’s Coal Fire Pizza has hit Long Island, this one in Wantagh. The Florida-based chain, headed by Franklin Square native Anthony Bruno, already has two Nassau County branches, one in Woodbury and the other in Carle Place.
The new Wantagh spot features the same menu of “well-done” coal oven pies — the cauliflower version is a standout — and such “Italian soul food” specialties as coal-oven roasted wings and pork ribs. In addition to offering wine and beer, the Wantagh spot has a full-service liquor bar.
Future Long Island branches are still in the oven. Noted earlier today: Work has begun on an Anthony's in the Peppertree Commons shopping center in Commack.
The newest Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza is at 3430 Sunrise Hwy., Wantagh, 516-679-2625.
