The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

Roy Pelaez, resourceful owner of Island Empanada in Ronkonkoma, has come up with a heart-shaped edition of his eatery's little fried pies for Valentine’s Day.

Choose any empanada from the menu and — with advance notice — you can have it made as a heart. Augmenting the regular menu of savory empanadas are new additions — spicy cheese, pernil and jerk chicken, to name a few. There are also dessert empanadas with apple or Oreo fillings.

Island Empanada is at  601-13 Portion Rd., Ronkonkoma, 631-617-6427.
