Chef (and Food Network personality) Marc Murphy isn't messing around with his mash-up creation. The Ditch Dog, a grilled hot dog and toasty bun topped with creamy mac and cheese, is said to be a guest-inspired creation turned mainstay menu item. Rich mac and cheese made with heavy cream and a mix of American, gruyere and parmesan cheese sinks onto the hot tube meat and meshes all too well with the fluffy bun. Go all out with bacon and/or lobster in your mac and be sure to bite into the most gourmet frank creation in all of Manhattan.
