So the big NYC food news is that Gray’s Papaya is closing its West Village location due to a rent hike. It is iconic, known for its super cheap hot dogs. I admit, though, that I only ate there once, while a student at NYU. I’m not a big hot dog person, so it wasn’t top on my list. But it’s always sad to see an iconic restaurant, especially one in the Village, close.
