Next time you're suffering from a punk/hippie/hipster sensory overload on your stroll down Hawthorne, duck into Nick's for a little no-nonsense old-school. Part diner, part shrine to the Yankees, Nick's serves up some kick-ass Coney Islands: hot dogs absolutely smothered in rich chili and cheese, topped off with diced raw onion. Order 'em single ($5), double ($7), triple ($8) or—good God, yes!—home run ($12). Add a glass of draft Bud ($1.50) and you've got an American classic. (JL)
