This will not end well for Mario Batali.

While the dirty-water dogs will be gone by the end of December, the city is keeping the gelato stand run by Mario Batali - a conservancy board member

Because why be on the Board of anything unless you can use it to your personal benefit?  I swear, I am so sick of celebrity chefs, I could just vomit.

"We got some word from our neighbors that [the hot-dog vendors] were unsightly," said Bulgari, the conservancy's president. "We suggested moving them based on what other people were telling us. The fact that it was done was Parks' decision."

And one must always kowtow to the whims of one's neighbors. Not, you know, the people who actually patronize those unsightly, ill-dressed, low-class hot-dog vendors. Anyway, they're probably just as low-class as the vendors, dahling, and we don't associate with their kind of riff-raff. Only Our People in Our Park, you know.

Just change the name of the cart to "Gourmet Dogs", offer up dijon mustard and boiled arugula toppings, charge ten bucks and call it a day.

No, just, no.  This is a public space.  They shouldn't be able to do that.

Even cooler would be something like chess-boxing, only with cooking. Now we just need to decide whether to let them use knives and other kitchen equipment during the boxing part.

Slappajo: Is this board elected or appointed?


Neither.

In April, The Post revealed the city Parks Department was secretly forming a conservancy with the help of actor John Leguizamo's wife, Justine, and socialite Veronica Bulgari.
Now it appears the private group was calling the shots well before introducing themselves to the public this summer.

Eh, a lot of the hotdog and ice cream vendors in NYC parks are a bit of a blight. I mean, would it kill them to clean their carts once a year?

And for the love of god, get rid of the people selling smelly peanuts.

2013-12-01 07:25:24 PM  
Reading the article I couldn't help but wonder if "unsightly" equaled "brown". But I don't know the area so I don't want to presume.

They weren't even smart about this. Arrange for the carts to get health inspected a couple of times and when they are shut down they lose their spot for making the park look unsanitary to eat in.

Seriously, why didn't mayor Nazi go after the street vendors with health inspections and liscensing? Giant sodas spilled on the sidewalk gross him out but a rotten sausage is fine? Priorities.

Yes, subby, look at all the references to Batali being the one kicking people out of the park! It's just his cart that's been there for 8 years and another that are staying there. Perhaps you're biased in your hate for Batali and ignoring the fact that the dosas cart is staying there too?

A Parks spokesman said the agency is allowing contracts with the hot-dog stands to expire to "ensure clear views of the fountain and arch and . . . to bring in a more diverse selection of food options."

By taking away hot-dog stands from patrons of the park, you're "bringing in" a more diverse selection of food options?!

/They could just restrict the license to certain areas of the park but instead the wealthy people want their fancy ice cream and no dirty dogs.
//I bet the Hipsters will move in next with "Korean Fusion" food trucks (or other stupid things, Ramen noodle burger anyone? :-P ) going right in front or under the arches

I like a good hot dog as much as the next person. But you're discussing the 'fine details' of consuming a pre-cooked condensate of fat held together with just enough meat to make it legally edible by the USDA's loose rules.

It's not 'fine dining'. Even 'a gourmet sausage' is still...ground meat. Typically meat which wasn't ideal or usable for other cuts or methods, all shoved into a casing.  It's basically SPAM, but, you know, edible.

Long way of saying it's pretty silly to be talking about the finer details of preparing your lardstick.

I agree, kooner. Reap, let people eat hot dogs however they want to eat them. Telling people your opinion of certain things of hot dog preparing and consuming as the "only acceptable" (method) is quite douchetastic and deserving of scorn.
 
2013-12-01 10:45:46 PM  
It's a proud tradition dating back to the native American Indians' practice of using every part of a buffalo or other large game animal taken in hunting and not wasting any part.  Hot dogs wished they were made out of tongues and sphincters, but that would be an exceptional batch to get such quality cuts.  There's lots of weighty flesh along the pathway between tongue and arsehole that no steakhouse or Chinese grill would consider paying for.  And that tonnage is shipped to Oscar Mayer, Bryan hot dogs, etc.  Omaha Steaks isn't calling up for tons of lips and eyelids.  But there's no way this gross tonnage of undesirable flesh can just be thrown away.  It took time and nutrients to grow those parts just like it did to grow the ribeye.  Hotdogs are the way the beef and pork industries make citizens pay for their clean-up bills.  And when they finally find a way to utilize ground hoof filings for something resembling a practical use, you'll be subscribing and picking up your cartons of ground hoof filing skin rejuvenating cream and living the "waste no part" dream.

Boiling is the only way the city allows them to be cooked from a cart.  Yes, people would rather have grilled.  Yes, the vendors would absolutely love to be able to grill them because they would sell more.  Not going to happen.

Yeah, pretty much this. Any "real" NYer won't touch the cart dogs. They will walk the 2 blocks from the park to Gray's Papaya or Papaya Dog. Or Mamoun's. Or the falafel place right across the street from Mamoun's. Or the Turkish kebab place half a block away. Or the $1 a slice pizza place or Artichoke, both of which are pretty recent. I think you get the idea by now. With the carts you're paying more for an inferior snack just to save 5 min of walking.

I've seen plenty of other food being grilled such as kebabs or burritos (Calexico is one thing I miss about NYC) so I don't see why they aren't allowed to grill hot dogs.

For what it's worth, I sent him an E-mail to complain.
I always thought he was more like a "sheet-metal chef" than an "Iron chef".

Are the heroin dealers still there?


Came here to say that as long as you can still get a bindle, who gives a fark? I usually score at Thompkin's, but once in awhile I go Washington Square.

Um, who goes to a public park for fine dining? If the wealthy don't like liking down and seeing a city, there are plenty of other places in this world to go.

ReapTheChaos: Any place that serves boiled hot dogs deserves to be put out of business. Hot dogs are to be cooked on a grill, in a pinch a frying pan or electric griddle will due, so long at the outer skin gets a good char on them. As always, mustard/onions, chili/cheese are the only acceptable toppings.

2 ways to make a proper skin-on dog
1) steamed (not boiled)
2) on a hot dog roller.
no, charred/burned hot dogs suck.

Clearly you have a keen sense of theology and geometry.  May Fortuna spin you ever upward.

I like a good hot dog as much as the next person. But you're discussing the 'fine details' of consuming a pre-cooked condensate of fat held together with just enough meat to make it legally edible by the USDA's loose rules.

It's not 'fine dining'. Even 'a gourmet sausage' is still...ground meat. Typically meat which wasn't ideal or usable for other cuts or methods, all shoved into a casing.  It's basically SPAM, but, you know, edible.

Long way of saying it's pretty silly to be talking about the finer details of preparing your lardstick.


hey! spam is edible. edible is a very loose term.
