More Is Less For $69 Hot Dog

The $69 Serendipity Foot Long Haute Dog at Serendipity 3.

I have no problem if somebody wants to shell out $69 for a hot dog. (Even in New York, where hot dogs are plentiful.) Serendipity 3, the New York eatery, lets diners do just that. What I do take issue with however, is that the thing is clearly served with ketchup. Now that I just can’t take seriously.

Designed for use on the grill, the hand-held hot dog accessory provides a convenient way to accept the siren song calling without suffering a convenience-store fate.
