Head downtown to Lafayette Coney Island when you're looking for a Coney Island hot dog. Though not as thick as a porkaphile might hope, they’re the real deal — not from the "they’ll never know the difference" school of cereal-and-filler production At many coneys, chili cheese fries come with iridescent liquid cheese. Lafayette heaps on real shredded cheese, which melts from the heat of the freshly fried fries. The waitstaff shouts your order from the front of the restaurant to the kitchen; it's a nice touch — that way you can never get away with ordering a salad and a Diet Coke.
