The 10 best Mediterranean restaurants on Long Island

The Mediterranean rolls from the Strait of Gibraltar to the Turkish coast, splashing onto North Africa and southern Europe. The inland sea reaches three continents and more than 20 nations and states. At its grandest length, the Mediterranean goes 2,700 miles. At its widest: 800 miles. That's a lot of food. Numerous restaurants on Long Island trace their cuisines to the Mediterranean. In Newsday's listings of the top 10, the focus is on Greece and the Middle East. Here they are. The favorite: MP Taverna in Roslyn. --PETER M. GIANOTTI/peter.gianotti@newsday.com and JOAN REMINICK/joan.reminick@newsday.com
