Good Cuban Sandwich on LI?

CurlieGlamourGirlie Aug 17, 2007 08:33 AM

After seeing Howie try to attempt this on Top Chef (I haven't seen this week's yet, so no spoilers please!) and remembering a place in Chelsea that had them in the window, my pregnant brain has decided we must have one.

Any suggestions on where I can get a good one??

    Laguna Grille in Westbury has the best Cuban Sandwich.
    1610 Old Country Road off Post/Merrick Avenue
    The food is excellent - great Cuban Restaurant

      Hmmm...not too off topic, the chicken and avocado sandwich is also top notch.

        Just came back from the Laguna grille. While if I were comparing it to Subway, this was a good Cubano. Being a gringo myself, I have the good fortune of marrying into a latino family. And one f the benefits is going to REAL spanish restaurants. This is a place for folks that get a little shaky when they hear los palabras en espanol. You folks are really missing out.

            Yes, that is pretty good. Only been to the Westbury one. Love the place, very nice people, solid food. The chicken and avocado pannini is tremendous. I like the option of black bean soup instead of fries, too.

              for those having trouble finding it, it's "Laguna Grill"
