It’s 2008 and things are already going great, and it has everything to do with my stop at Gray’s Papaya! Since 1972 Nicolas A.B. Gray has been feeding New Yorkers some of the yummiest hot dogs known to man. Now I’m not hear to tell you they’re healthier or better quality than Hebrew National or Sabrett Kosher Dogs, but in a place that stuanchly supported Rudy Giuliani, they answer to a pretty high authority as well.


These franks have the perfect snap, and their mustard has the right spice. Put a little Sauerkraut on and you’re got yourself a date to remember. Don’t pass up their special that includes one of their many “healthful” juices. I dig the “Coconut Champagne,” myself.
