Feltman’s of Coney Island bringing its hot dogs to St. Mark's Place starting today



After peddling hot dogs this past summer at a pop-up in Ditmas Park, the owner of the revived Feltman’s of Coney Island brand is bringng his franks to St. Mark's Place.

Starting today, Feltman’s of Coney Island owner and Brooklyn native Michael Quinn will be selling hot dogs at Augers Well, the bar at 115 St. Mark's Place between Avenue A and First Avenue.

Per the Coney Island Blog:

Instead of serving $2 hot dogs as they did all summer Feltman’s will be serving up enormous franks for $5 each, along with their very popular homemade apple cider vinegar mustard, which will be whipped up daily in the Augurs Well kitchen.

Feltman's is named after Charles Feltman, purportedly the inventor of the hot dog as well as the restaurant that was located in Coney Island from 1870-1954. (Read more about Feltman at the Coney Island History Project here.)



Quinn reportedly still plans to reopen a restaurant in Coney Island... but, as the Coney Island Blog notes, "right now he’s having fun telling the Feltman’s story and creating brand recognition." And he will be doing so right next door to Crif Dogs. Of course Feltman's and Nathan's co-exited for more than 40 years in Coney Island...

Frankly, I don't know if I'd be as content as a dead pig in the sunshine knowing that I'd invented the hot dog, though I'm sure old Feltman lived high on the hog for doing so. Here's everything unpalatable about an already unpalatable animal - try it, you'll like it!

On the other hand, mustard is a gas, baby. I don't know about Feltman's but Sir Kensington's makes a delectable spicy brown. I've never eaten so much mustard in my life.

So if I read this right, these hot dogs have nothing to do with the original Feltmans as per recipe, ingredients and probably flavor yet using the Feltman name is suppose to make us want to believe we are eating something will roots in the early days of Coney Island?

It is too bad that Feltman's went with the late 20th century plastic squeeze bottle for their mustard. They could have gone with the classic 'pot' design. That would have given them the authenticity they need.

p.s. I can never get all the mustard out of those squeeze bottles. What a waste of design.

Are they kosher?

Just another fake business that has no passion only research behind it and of course investors looking to hide cash.

Love it that Ditmas Park got $2 dogs but we in the EV will have to fork over $5. I guess he knows his demographics. NYU bros need supersize franks and have plenty of daddy's dough to pay for them.

NYC badly needs a place with Chicago style hot dogs- poppy seed buns, mustard (NEVER ketchup), chopped onions, sweet relish, tomato slices, pickle spear, sport peppers and take or leave the celery salt. It's a meal! Nothing better and they are nonexistent in The City.

Say what you will about the superiority of NY pizza... I'd agree Chicago style pizza is not as good but when it comes to hot dogs, Chicago rules. Now you know
