DETAILS

THIS LOCATION CLOSED JANUARY 2014

Sometimes, amid all the hybrid pastry hysteria, $30 lobster rolls and aggressively sourced (and aggressively priced) farm-to-table fare that Manhattan's restaurants have to offer, a New Yorker just needs a hot dog. For those times, there's Gray's Papaya. A couple of perfectly grilled all-beef dogs with slightly crunchy casing on toasted buns accompanied by a non-alcoholic papaya drink won’t set you back much more than five bucks. 

Cash only. No alcohol available. Open 24 hours daily. "[Gray's Papaya] has long ruled the area's tropical-drink-and-hot-dog market, with crispy-skinned all-beef Sabretts for a price that can't be beat."
- Time Out New York

"The best of the Papaya Posse, Gray's, griddles the tastiest, snappiest $1.95 dog in town. No less a connoisseur of scrap meats than Mario Batali is a fan."
- New York magazine

"Nowhere but New York City do you find the combination of hot dogs and tropical drinks, and Gray's is one of the best practitioners. It's hard to find a cheaper meal."
- The New York Times

Zagat 2014: 20 food rating (good to very good)
