Helmed by hot-dog enthusiast and veteran restaurateur Will Brown, New York Dawg Pound nestles its inimitable creations inside freshly baked buns in a lively establishment accented by graffiti art, wall murals, and arcade games. Nathan’s 100% all-beef franks, Johnsonville brats, and Hillshire Farm polish sausages are doled out alongside herbivorous delights such as a roasted-carrot Dawg and a chipotle black-bean veggie patty. The comfort-fare emporium also houses toppings that run the gamut from four types of mustard to Chicago-style accoutrements in the form of pickles, onions, tomatoes, and tiny Bears jerseys made out of celery salt. Diners can select from a bevy of sides, such as sweet-potato waffle fries and onion straws, while sipping fountain or bottled Pepsi products.
