ORDER coffee at BLD, and a family-sized French press pot soon appears at the center of the table. Its stainless-steel sides prevent you from seeing inside, but your server will tell you precisely when to press the plunger. It pours out dark and strong, a brew made from organic coffee beans roasted at Allesandro Cafe in Valencia. No worries about flagging down the waiter to refill your cup. At BLD, you do it yourself, and somehow, you never get to the end of the pot.

Simon LA Chef Kerry Simon might look like a rock star, but the guy can cook. Take the lobster roll he does for lunch at his sleek new restaurant in the Sofitel. It begins with lots of chunks of sweet Maine lobster dressed in a house-made mayo accented with dill and tarragon. These are tucked into a warm La Brea Bakery hot dog bun. To accompany? Corn on the cob. * Lobster roll, $23. 8555 Beverly Blvd., L.A., (310) 358-3979.

Dear SOS: Luna Park serves the best Mediterranean tuna salad sandwich -- so good, in fact, that my boyfriend and I call the restaurant Luna Tuna. I was hoping you could winkle the recipe out of the chef for me. Susan Lee Los Angeles Dear Susan: You're right. The sandwich is exceptional. There's no mayo; instead, imported tuna is combined with sunny Mediterranean ingredients, then layered on grilled ciabatta with an arugula-fennel salad. Total time: 35 minutes Servings: 8 Note: Italian tuna is available at Italian delis and specialty food markets.

It's two classic sandwiches in one--grilled cheese and tuna. Broadway Deli: This version mixes albacore tuna with celery, chives, tarragon, mayonnaise and chopped egg whites. It comes on wheat, rye or sourdough, grilled until the cheese--Swiss, Jack or cheddar--is running down the sides. You get French fries on the side. (Tuna melt, $9.25.) Broadway Deli, 1457 Third St. Promenade, Santa Monica (310) 451-0616. Victor's Restaurant: Here's a high-quality old-fashioned tuna melt: line-caught albacore, chopped eggs, mayonnaise, celery and onions.

When I think of January, I think tuna, celery, cucumbers, carrot sticks--anything light. One must-have of mine is tuna salad. I created this tuna salad with my light favorites, including lemon and orange zest. I like to serve it on red leaf lettuce with pink grapefruit sections, something else I love. Serve a half pita bread to go along with the tuna or spoon the lettuce and salad into the pita and eat it like a sandwich. I also like to spoon this salad on crackers for a quick snack.
