This week, our beloved Gray's in Greenwich officially closed. To think of it shuttered makes me a little sad to say the least. It wasn't that they had the best hot dogs, it was that Gray's was a part of people's lives for a very long time.
Pineapple and potato chips? Dill pickles and bacon? Wasabi mayo and sushi nori? These are the odd creations that make the little hole-in-the-wall that is Simon's worth a visit. They have incorporated the flavors of the world with the classic American hot dog.
Hats off to organic and natural meats company Applegate for pulling together this sweet video featuring 20 different regional hot dog styles in a short, 90-second video. You may want to watch it a few times -- blink and you might miss a few.
