It’s not the Coney Island you know and love, with Nathan’s franks and gritty vaudevillian charms. Instead, chef-brothers Eli and Max Sussman tap into the Greek-American diners—called “coney islands”—of their native Detroit for this stall, joining their shawarma stand Samesa inside Crown Heights beer hall Berg’n. Named after their maternal grandparents, the counter issues out Greek specialties such as spinach pie and saganaki (sizzling cheese and bread), along with hot dogs tricked out the Motown way: with brisket chili, yellow mustard and white onions. Michigan transplants can also find regional snacks like Better Made chips and Vernors ginger ale.
