ANTHONY'S COAL FIRED PIZZA (locations in Carle Place, Commack, Great Neck, Wantagh, Woodbury): Focaccia baked in a coal-fired oven is one reason the tuna sandwich at this pizza-centric chain is a standout. The canned solid white tuna, left in chunks, is mixed with fresh lemon juice, olive oil, red onion, salt, pepper and celery. Finishing touches: arugula and sliced tomato.

Top sandwiches on Long Island

Ready to go between the bread with something delicious? Long Islanders have plenty of sandwich creations to bite into. Some are childhood classics given a grown-up tweak -- such as a grilled cheese sandwich made with three kinds of cheese, tomato and thick-cut bacon. Or a lemon-kissed tuna sandwich made without mayonnaise. Others, such as the French-Vietnamese banh mi and traditional Cuban sandwich, are imports given a chef's own spin. Here 10 sandwich picks. --JOAN REMINICK, PETER M. GIANOTTI & ERICA MARCUS
