Danish Dogs

If you commute through Grand Central, you’ve probably already blown past this place at least 1000 times without ever giving it a second glance. But look closer and you will discover some pretty hot dogs.

All very inventive, most good, and one absolutely delicioso! The beef hot dog is nothing you would expect and everything right at the same time. Topped with spiced ketchup, mustard, Danish remoulade sauce, red onion, pickled cucumber and crispy shallots served on a freshly baked bun made from local grains, potato and Meyers Bageri porridge. It’s a mouthful, both figuratively and literally (pictured, second from the left).

They also harbor an interesting array of local beers, almost none of which I’ve ever heard about before and many are hit and miss, so unless you know what you’re getting yourself into, or if you’ve never met a beer you didn’t like, I say stick with the non-alcoholic options, otherwise you’re playing Russian roulette…with beer. Okay, fine. That actually sounds kinda fun. Spin the revolver!

I know… Jose Andres… blah, blah, blah… Well, sorry to say it, but the décor/scene definitely steals the show. And it is quite the scene. Great people watching set amidst an extremely modernist take on a bazaar. But unfortunately you can’t eat those things, so if it’s food you seek, welcome to Russian Roulette. Everything is SOOO hit and miss- even the cocktails were a disappointment. And unfortunately I would say we only hit on about 20% of our selections. So for us I guess it was more miss and hit. My one reco would’ve been the foie gras cotton candy- yes, you heard right. So inventive and delicious, we put in a second order on the spot- good thing, otherwise we probably would’ve starved. But now for the rub, since California has banned foie gras, there’s absolutely zero reasons to go here anymore. Culinary speaking, of course.
