Glizzy’s is filling a need with its gourmet dogs and late night eats. The restaurant was started by three longtime friends - Johnny Huynh (Lucy’s Vietnamese restaurants), Nikki Yam, and Philip Ng. As for the name, “glizzy” is New York slang for a hot dog.
The bite-size restaurant, located at 390 Metropolitan Ave in Williamsburg, is offering a series of crowd pleasing hot dogs from a counter made to look like a New York City hot dog cart. But that is where the similarities end.
Instead, visitors will find tricked out dogs like the Sean Paul with Jerked Smoke Brisket, coleslaw, and Mike's Hot Honey; Chinatown with Cucumber, Chilli Crisps, Cilantro, Fried Shallots, Scallions, and Mapo Sauce; Fuhgeddaboudit with Crushed Garlic Breadcrumbs, Shredded Mozzarella, and Pizza Sauce; and the The Ocky with Chopped Onions, Tomatoes, Harissa Sauce, and Yogurt Sauce.
Visitors can choose from 21 different toppings ranging from fried onions and potato salad to chili and sesame seeds. There are also a dozen sauces including hoisin, harissa and curry-ranch. You can also make it a veggie dog for a buck extra.
Glizzy’s is open from 12pm to 12am on weekdays, and 12pm to 4am weekends
