Frankfurters, wieners, red hots, floaters, hot dogs, or tube steaks — call them what you will, weenies are perfect summer fare, perhaps because they’re so cheap (even most of the gourmet ones). Eat them in their streamlined perfection while walking on the beach or relaxing in a park. And vegetarians can enjoy them, too, since their version doesn’t taste all that different, especially when heaped with luscious toppings. After a lull in popularity that happened in the years right before the pandemic, hot dogs are back and stronger than ever, as more cuisines make use of them in innovative ways. Nothing proves this more than the current surge of Korean corn dogs, the most welcome recent addition to New York’s hot dog landscape.
