Nathan’s Famous, battered and closed since Superstorm Sandy blew into town, is in the midst of demolishing the interior and rebuilding hot dog heaven for a spring reopening, according to a report by the Village Voice [1].

The hot dogs at the Nathan’s on Coney Island are quite possibly the best in the city, so their recent removal from ‘hot-dog-iverse’ have been a tough blow to¬†wiener¬†lovers the world over. The interior was ravaged by water caused by Sandy’s storm surge, so it has to be gutted and replaced with sparkling new hot-dog equipment.

A Frankfurter expert (i.e. some worker at the site) estimated that it will be another month before rebuilding can begin.
