Steven Yee and Allen Leung made a splash when they opened the Lower East Side seafood spot Tides. Unfortunately, their follow-up hot-dog haven falls far short of their previously high standards. The long, cantilevered counter (designed by LTL) floats the length of the 260 square-foot micro-space. But Empire National kosher beef franks are squandered on lowbrow supermarket buns; some linger far too long on the grill since this joint doesn’t have the turnover of a Gray’s Papaya. For Rivington Street bar-crawlers, Dash may prove a decent source for a late-night food-fix, but whether the place can build a steady, mid-day clientele with quirky condiments like lime-tomato cilantro salsa or lemon juice and mayonnaise remains to be seen. (Veggie-based mock hot dogs, patties, and sausages, cooked on a separate grill, are also available.)Recommended Dishes
