The Best Hot Dogs in New York City
Whether you're looking for the flavors of a baseball game, a summer cookout or a sidewalk frank, NYC is home to excellent hot dogs.
Relish the Hot Dog
The NoMad Bar
Taking cues from drinking establishments of yore, this place is warm and clubby, with intricate wood paneling, a long bar and two levels of leather seating. It’s elegant and casual at the same time, with a perfect menu of pub-inspired dishes. Chicken pot pie uses meat from the NoMad Restaurant’s famous roast birds, and a dry-aged burger is bolstered with bone marrow. The hot dog, though, is one of the classiest and most decadent tubes of meat to be found in Gotham. Blending New York, Chicago and sheerly gluttonous styles, the kosher beef dog is wrapped in bacon, then garnished in truffled aioli and celery root relish, with a blanket of melted Gruyère on top.
