Nathan’s Famous, battered and closed since Superstorm Sandy blew into town, is in the midst of demolishing the interior and rebuilding hot dog heaven for a spring reopening, according to a report by the Village Voice.

The hot dogs at the Nathan’s on Coney Island are quite possibly the best in the city, so their recent removal from ‘hot-dog-iverse’ have been a tough blow to wiener lovers the world over. The interior was ravaged by water caused by Sandy’s storm surge, so it has to be gutted and replaced with sparkling new hot-dog equipment.

A Frankfurter expert (i.e. some worker at the site) estimated that it will be another month before rebuilding can begin.
