The Nathan’s Famous story is as much about famous flavor as it is tradition. In 1916, Polish immigrant Nathan Handwerker started a nickel hot dog stand on Coney Island with a $300 loan from two friends and his wife’s secret spice recipe. Today, Nathan’s is the most famous hot dog in the world, with restaurants across the globe, products in every supermarket in America and millions of fans. And yes, the original Coney Island restaurant is still there at the corner of Surf and Stillwell – home of our annual Hot Dog Eating Contest. Legend has it that four immigrants held a hot dog eating contest to prove who was more patriotic. Find out more here.
WELCOME TO JULIANA'S, A NEW YORK-STYLE PIZZA emporium. Juliana's heralds the return of Patsy Grimaldi, New York City’s most celebrated pizza proprietor: not only to the NYC restaurant scene, but to 19 Old Fulton Street, the original location under the Brooklyn Bridge where he and his late wife, Carol, founded legendary Grimaldi’s Pizzeria. Unbeknownst to many, Pat and Carol severed their association with Grimaldi’s more than a decade ago when they sold the restaurant (along with their name) to a former customer. Even though they were no longer involved in the business they made famous, they never lost their zeal for serving (and eating!) truly great pizza. Find out more here.
