Dish no. 72: Hot dog from Katz's Delicatessen (205 East Houston Street, 212-254-2246)

Katz's has seen some challenges after 100 years in business, but it remains a downtown staple. An establishment both locals and tourist can both enjoy, it is internationally known for its pastrami and corned beef sandwiches -- which makes it easy to overlook the fantastic homemade hot dog served with sauerkraut and deli mustard. Katz's dog is a little firmer and darker than most other wieners, and you can actually taste the quality of the meat, just like a good kielbasa or Italian sausage. The sharp sauerkraut adds nice textural play as well as acidity. Inside tip: Ask the cooks to toast the bun for you when you order; it makes a big difference. Pair it with a Cel-ray or black cherry soda.
