Not just how Randy Jackson describes his hair on rainy days, Fritzi Dog is a Farmer's Market stand doling out fully customizable hot dogs in various iterations, all, um, iterated by insanely-accoladed chef Neal Fraser, who's usually known more for white tablecloths than yellow mustard. Choose between 3 different varieties of dogs, then pick your bun - there's even pretzel and guten-free varieties. (Pretzel?!) Hawt-diggity-dawg!
