Hot dog at Old Town BarA gang of nouveau hot dogs with haute chef pedigrees rolled into town this year. But this simple classic---lowered from the second-floor kitchen via an antique dumb waiter---puts the young pups to shame. The hefty all-beef Sabre
Amid the swank food sanctums sprouting around Park Avenue South, this classic tavern remains a shrine to unchanging values. Most old-time Old-Towners go for the much-praised burger, which we found in need of a little salt. For lightweights, there’s a smattering of salads and other sandwiches. Some things, however, do change. Bloomberg’s antismoking legislation has made the once befogged booths and long mahogany bar strangely haze-free.
