Hot Dog Wars Starting Up in Manhattan
Before it was the burger wars. Now it's the hot dog wars. My beloved Papaya King on 86th Street and Third opened today after a nice clean-up, adding seating, new menu items (breakfast!), and a spiffy look. Gray's Papaya on Eighth Avenue and 37th Street is offering 50-cent dogs for an unclear period of time -- grab 'em now. And Shake Shack still rules, in my opinion, with their version of the greatest hot dog ever, the Chicago dog. After I finish digesting all this "goodness," I'll get back to researching hamburgers. Promise.
