Drafts + Dogs, a new cocktail and “craft” hot dog stall from the team behind 18.21 Bitters, is now open inside Ponce City Market’s Central Food Hall.
Located next to Lucky Lotus Juice Bar on the first floor, the walk-up eatery boasts an assortment of cocktails and hot dogs made from locally-sourced ingredients.
Drafts + Dogs’ all-day food menu features “creative takes on the classic hot dog” like The Californian, a 100 percent black Angus beef hot dog topped with black bean and corn salsa, avocado, sharp cheddar, sour cream, and cilantro.
Vegan options, naked dogs, Chicago-style dogs, and other options are also available.
Accompanying Drafts + Dogs’ food menu is a selection of 18.21 Bitters’ original cocktails, including draft and frozen cocktails like the Run Forrest, Run—Old Forester Bourbon, peach, ginger, lemon, 18.21 Prohibition Aromatic Bitters and a lemon slice.
The shop also offers craft beer and wine, as well as non-alcoholic drink options.
“Co-founders Missy and Kristin Koefod developed Drafts + Dogs as a homage to the simplicity and comfort found in the meals they shared while traveling around the world,” according to a press release announcing the opening.
“Whether it was an NY-style hot dog eaten bench-side in Central Park or memorable snack enjoyed from a cart outside the splendor of Westminster Abbey, their travels inspired them to couple their food experiences with an extensive cocktail knowledge to create Drafts + Dogs.”
Now through June 9, Drafts + Dogs will offer one hot dog and one cocktail on the menu (changes weekly) with 100 percent of profits going to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
