There also will be an 11th feature covering 10 great restaurants that didn't fit into any of these categories.

The restaurants were selected by Newsday's food critics Peter M. Gianotti and Joan Reminick with input from food writer Erica Marcus. In addition to the Top 10, they chose a favorite in each category.

These winners made the cut based primarily on the quality of their food. In the “cheap“ category, cost was a key factor. To represent what's available on as much of Long Island as possible, location also was taken into account.

We'd like to know your choices, too. Let the conversations begin.
