Late night, quick post, quick food. MoFo will take a lot out of you.
It's hard to classify "New York food" because the city is such a hodge-podge of so many different cultures and people. I think the one thing that is an underlying factor is that we love our street food - and not the food truck street food of Portland that is like, soy curls with kale or whatever. We want quick and easy and hand-held and filling as we rush from appointment to appointment to catch the train or rush our kids to ballet practice or debate team or take the cats to the vet before they close or whatever.
Basically, we want hot dawgs.
With maybe a little higher quality ingredients? Organic sweet relish (none of that dill crap!), spicy yellow mustard (not TOO high quality), plain sauerkraut (ya gotta), organic whole wheat buns, Smart dogs (I saw the Field Roast franks but they were too $$).
How do you like to top yah dawgs?
