Any Detroit natives craving a real coney dog should high-tail it to Williamsburg next week. Max and Eli Sussman, the Michigan-born brothers behind the Samesa shawarma stand and Ed & Bev’s Detroit-Style Coney Island stand at Berg’n, have launched an Ed & Bev’s lunch pop-up. Swing by Humboldt & Jackson any weekday this month between 11am to 3:30pm for a legit Detroit diner lunch experience.
Their coney dog—a hot dog topped with a spice-rich brisket-based chili (no beans), yellow mustard and diced onion in a steamed bun—is obviously the star on the menu. But you can also snag coney fries, cheeseburgers, corned beef hash and Reubens (and it’s worth noting all the meats are organic and antibiotic/hormone-free). In a nod to the Greek-American heritage of Detroit's 'coney diners,' you’ll find chicken lemon rice soup (avgolemono) and saganaki (fried cheese) as well. Boozy milkshakes and Vernors ginger ale are also in effect.
If you can’t hit the lunchtime pop-up, hit up Humboldt & Jackson's coney and karaoke party on Friday April 1, 8pm–2am.
