Nick's Famous Coney Island
Opened by Domenick “Nick” Carlacio, this hot dog emporium is now owned by Tyler Rogoway. The shop still sells its popular coney: an all-beef hot dog topped with seasoned ground beef sauce, onions, and American cheese. Over the years, the menu expanded to include nachos, hummus, and salads, as well as special dogs like The Dogfather, a brat with sauerkraut and grilled onions. Nick’s has a full bar with six beer taps and a rounded counter with built-in stools. A full roster of cocktails and shots includes a SE Bookie, made with Crown Royal, Bailey’s, Kahlua and butterscotch.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
