Who wants hot dogs!? Pretty much all of Williamsburg. Crif Dogs brought their signature brand of gourmet franks over from St. Marks in the East Village. Expect a lot of folks to roll into this small storefront after a night out at the many bars in the area. What’s better than a dog smothered in chili cheese with a side of taters at that point in the night? The correct answer to that question is passing out in bed, but not until you finish your hot dogs! Expect creative options when it comes to the wieners—you can get a lot more than ketchup and mustard as toppings, including cream cheese, scallions, seeds and pineapple. Sadly, this outpost of Crif comes without a secret cocktail bar hidden in the back (you’ll find PDT in the village’s outpost). What you get here is early morning service. The store’s take out window opens at 7 a.m. to pour coffee to commuters heading to the L Train.

Crif Dogs New Jersey native Brian Shebairo expands his popular East Village hot-dog mecca to Williamsburg. True to its casual roots, the small Brooklyn outpost will be outfitted with old-school video games, steel floors and a vintage skateboard collection. You’ll find the same late-night munchies on offer: Tater-Tots, chili cheese fries, milk shakes and snappy, deep-fried dogs in creative combinations, like the Tsunami (bacon-wrapped with teriyaki sauce, pineapple and green onions) and the John-John Deragon (cream cheese, scallions and a sprinkling of everything-bagel seeds). But this location will also appeal to the early-morning set with a takeout window serving Intelligentsia coffee and breakfast sandwiches a few steps from the Bedford L stop.
