Estimated cost 182,000£ six months, business class and two nights at each location.
How much on points?
Hey, maybe I'll do a KickStarter!
let alone other missed dining opportunities in a great city like NYC. The best food isn't always at a Michelin starred restaurant.
This experience for 182,000£ seems like a bargain compared to http://www.holidaysplease.co.uk/news/drinking-holiday/.
True!!! Does Nathan's Famous still have it's original shop on Coney Island? Been a long time since I've been there to enjoy those doggies.
that actually sounds a lot less expensive than I would have expected...
It sounds like the days of old, I really wonder if there are affluent people who are willing to commit that much time to a trip?
Depends what you mean by "original". The shop was damaged by Hurricane Sandy but it reopened.
As long as they saved those wonderful franks (do they have the Gulden's mustard too?) and the fries made in dirty oil that didn't get sand blown over them by Sandy. Corn on the cob should be fine as well as the deep fried shrimp in a paper cup.
Making me hungry for all that now, and I haven't even had breakfast yet.
You work in advertising, I see!
In case you get there by the end of the month you may as well get your second hot dog for 5 cents:
Nope, never did, too unexciting after years on Wall St. and now retiredly retired and missing Nathans from eons ago.
Could the third fourth and fifth one also work for 5 cents each? Bargain!!! Of course the chopped onions are probably extra by now, aren't they?
I can't decide whether I'm jealous or disgusted. Thanks for posting, naan3776--but now I'm a little hungry.
Sometimes the food in a michelin star restaurant is above average, but rest of the things like presentation and service put it over the hump.
It's been a while since I was there, but I recall they were pretty generous with the 2 for 1 (or 2nd for 5 cents) coupons. They insisted you had a coupon for each pair -- e.g. if you ordered 4 for the price of 2 you'd need two coupons, but the coupons could be obvious Xeroxes -- they wouldn't care as long as you had the piece of paper. People sometimes stood around selling the coupons for 50 cents.
Pretty sure onions are extra. Ketchup and mustard still free but they dramatically slowed down the dispensers -- people were filling up baggies with the stuff and talking it home, or filling up paper bags then tossing them with most of the ketchup unconsumed. (Or tossing the bags into open car windows, but that's another story!)
So, coupon scalpers, ketchup bombs and mustard thieves -- are you SURE you miss the place?
As a very young youngster growing up in Flatbush, and then returning to Nathans once many years ago, yep, I really do miss those great doggies, french fries, and other goodies from them. The other assorted "amenities" I'd pass on, including the bag tossers.
I must admit, the place evokes feelings of nostalgia.
