David Chang has a James Beard award, a recent fashion spread in Esquire, glossy-food-magazine honors galore, and the gushing admiration of nearly every right-minded foodie in town. Just about everything a young chef could ever want. Still, his friends at PDT (113 St. Marks Pl., nr. Ave. A; 212-614-0386), the Crif Dogs cocktail-lounge annex, thought that something was lacking. So, with Chang’s blessing, they’ve introduced the Chang Dog—a deep-fried hot dog wrapped in bacon and smothered with Chang’s own Momofuku Ssäm Bar red kimchee purée. Those keeping score will note that this catapults Chang into a whole new realm of superstardom, beyond the level of mere celebrity chef and into the rarified ranks of icons—Jerry Seinfeld, Bob Costas, and, of course, Fyvush Finkel among them—who have sandwiches named after them.
