Mr. Levine interviewed me for this article. I gave him much of the information about where the hot dogs come from (Marathon) as well as suggestions for places to try, including Syd’s and Rutt’s Hut. I haven’t been to the Brooklyn Diner yet, but out of those named, I like Syd’s better than the New York dogs. Out of the New York dogs that use Sabrett, Papaya King is consistently grilled to perfection and not undercooked. I though that I would be mentioned somewhere in the article.
