It's a little slice of Detroit in Crown Heights.

Chef brothers Max and Eli Sussman just opened a new shop serving Detroit-style "Coney" dogs, plus Greek salads and sandwiches inside Crown Heights' wildly popular food hall, Berg'n. The new stand, dubbed Ed and Bev's Detroit Style Coney Island, sits right next to their shawarma stand, Samesa.

The brothers have a deep, well-documented affinity for the "Coney Island diner" food of their home city of Detroit. The menu includes bread with sizzling cheese, a burger with cheddar sauce, and a classic Coney dog made with brisket chili.  Snack options include fresh spanakopita, McClure's pickles, Better Made Potato Chips. The most expensive item is $10. Here's a peek at that menu:

It is with insane pleasure that Max Jeff and I take this opportunity to share with you a very special moment for our family on what we know is a very serious day in NYC. We want to let all you Detroiters and New Yorkers know that yesterday we launched "Ed and Bev's Detroit Style Coney Island" inside Bergn directly next to Samesa shawarma shop. Ed an Bev's is based on our love for the Detroit "coney island" which is a greek style diner specializing in coney dogs (hot dog with chili, white onions and mustard), greek salad, saganaki (flaming cheese) and other Detroit delicacies. We are using organic, grassfed, hormone and antibiotic free meat products. Our cheese sauce, dressings and pita are made in house. We're getting spinach pie from Astoria and bringing in cool things from Detroit. We'll be serving Vernors, McClures, Better Made Potato Chips and a bunch of other rotating small batch detroit products. If you know a great detroit product we should carry let us know! We just opened yesterday so we're still tweaking but expect a Sanders Ice Cream dessert, a CPF, perhaps a Faygo flavor here and there and maybe even some Mackinac Island fudge down the line?? Why call it Ed and Bev's? The restaurant is named after our incredible Papa Edward and our endlessly loving and caring Nana Beverly. They loved incredibly together and today is our Nana's birthday. So we were able to call her on her birthday and share with her the news that we just opened up our second restaurant and named it after them. #Bergn #edandbevs #coneyisland #detroit #coneydog #diner #brooklyn #crownheights #thesussmans #bk #detroit
