Years ago, Long Islanders hankering for lobster rolls would have to drive almost as far as Montauk to get a fix. But now the combo of cool lobster salad on a toasted hot dog bun is the darling of clam shacks and fish houses Islandwide. Some are made with the meat pulled from local lobsters, others with lobster meat brought in from Canada. Here are some favorites, from East Rockaway to the East End. --Compiled by Joan Reminick
