Crif Dogs

113 St. Marks Pl.
between Ave. A & 1st Ave.
New York, NY, 10009, United States
TEL: (212) 614-2728

Nearly a decade old, this East Village restaurant is the brainchild of Brian Shebairo and Chris Antista (whose first name sounds like "Crif" when pronounced with a smoked, deep-fried, beef-and-pork wiener in one's mouth—which is how the true Crif dog comes). Crif is known for its ultracreative combinations, like the Morning Jersey—a ham-wrapped link separated from its bun by melted cheese and a fried egg—or the Jon-Jon Dragon, which has a generous slathering of cream cheese, some scallions, and a sprinkling of the seeds found on an everything bagel. And be sure to check out the phone booth, behind which lies the speakeasy PDT.
