NATHAN’S HOT DOGS

Nathan Handwerker supposedly took the advice of Eddie Cantor and Jimmy Durante (at the time they were a singing waiter and his piano accompanist) and opened a restaurant in 1916 that became a New York institution, 'Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs'.  He sold hot dogs for a nickle - his former employer had been selling them for a dime.
