Hot dogs and hamburgers get a makeover at the new eatery Kings of Kobe, with American wagyu beef and imaginative toppings. Among the hot dogs, you’ll find the Sweet Munchies with Coca Cola-soaked caramelized red onions and cream cheese, and the Manhattanite, with caramelized apples, frisée, shaved cheddar, and wasabi aioli. The burger menu includes the Better Than Caesar, with burrata, baby arugula, and stone fruit relish, and The Queen Rules, with prosciutto, pepper jack, frisée, and sweet chili jam.
“Hot dogs and hamburgers embody the essence of the American social experience,” managing partner Etai Cinader said in a press release. “Kings of Kobe was created to honor hot dogs and hamburgers by enhancing them in a manner consistent with New Yorkers’ cosmopolitan palate.”
Open daily from noon.
