Crif Dogs

113 St. Marks Place New York, NY 10009 | East Village | 212-614-2728

Location Description:

Our favorite place in the city to score hot dogs is a subterranean lair that offers a broad range of toppings and some beguiling pre-set topping combinations. Our favorite is the spicy redneck; (wrapped with bacon, plus chili, cole slaw, and jalapenos), but weenie fundamentalists will head for the plain New Yorker (grilled) or the Crif Dog (deep fried, a la Clifton, NJ's sainted Rutt's Hut). Frank innovation proceeds apace: the trendy Crif Dog Bar next door offers weenies invented by superchefs David Chang and Wylie Dufresne, in addition to the regular roster of tube steaks, if you can only figure out how to get in.
