hot dogs, bbq hot dogs

The Met's Hot Dog King: In tandem with the happy news that the Metropolitan Museum of Art is reopening, so is its resident "hot dog king," Dan Rossi, who has hawked his specialty food outside of the Met for 13 years. Though he never moved his cart from its coveted location, he did close it, telling the New York Times simply, “no museum, no customers.”  Scarf down one of his $3 hotdogs or pick up a $1 water bottle before venturing into the museum. 1000 Fifth Avenue, outside of the museum.
