Pigs-in-a-blanket at Brooklyn Piggies
The one-dish-restaurant craze rages on with this pigs-in-a-blanket storefront, a permanent offshoot of Missy Koo and Stacy Cole’s popular Smorgasburg stand. The pint-size takeout spot fuels East Village snackers into the wee hours via a streetside walk-up window, offering three varieties of the pastry-swaddled cocktail frank: a classic beef-and-pork link, a paprika-and-pepper version, and a chicken wiener pepped up with Parmesan, fennel and oregano. To complement the kitted-out sausages, Tot-like potato puffs and a trio of house-made condiments (ketchup, spicy mustard and BBQ) are also served in the brick-walled nook. 195 Ave A between 12th and 13th Sts (212-533-3800)
