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.

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
