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

The pride of Philadelphia, the cheesesteak, has been gaining popularity on Long Island, but cheesesteak-free zones persist. In Blue Point, longtime cheesesteak fan Arnold Gifford decided to fill the local void and opened a small counter-service cafe and takeout devoted to the specialty —  and more.

Not surprisingly, a list of cheesesteaks leads the menu, with a “classic Philly” ($8.99), made with Cheez Wiz and onions, the “Arn’s favorite” ($8.99) with Pepper Jack cheese, onions, peppers, horseradish mayo and Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce, plus the “Italian steak” with tomato sauce and melted mozzarella ($8.99). You can also get a chicken cheesesteak ($6.99), a half-pound Angus burger ($6.99) and a Chicago-style hot dog ($2.49), among other options. Hand-cut fries ($2 regular; $3 large) round out the menu.

Beyond Philly is at 168 Montauk Hwy. Blue Point, 631-868-3896,
