One can customize an Italian hero (fully loaded, $9) any number of ways, but don't dare skip the hot peppers. Jimmy's sandwiches travel well, to the beach (in mild weather), on one of Sheepshead Bay's fishing party boats, or back to your place for a evening meal after you've lunched at one of the nearby Uzbek, Ukrainian, or Armenian eateries. But don't dawdle: Jimmy's opens early and closes by dinnertime.
