NYC summer staple Nathan's serves the quintessential Coney Island hot dog. Founded by Polish immigrant Nathan Handwerker in 1916, the restaurant is a testament to the opportunities the City holds for people all around the globe. Of course, it's also the site of the world's best-known eating competition—the Nathan’s Famous hot dog–eating contest—where every July 4, hungry participants have 10 minutes to scarf down as many franks as possible.
