Dogma Grill Restaurant Review

: You can't credit an outdoor hot dog stand with revitalizing a neighborhood. Or can you? Dogma Grill was among the first to modernize the Upper East Side, attracting citywide movers-and-shakers --- from commissioners to strollers --- from nearby neighborhoods and businesses alike. Admittedly, it’s not the hot ticket it was originally. Over the years Dogma has changed ownership several times, and the food and service have evolved too --- not necessarily for the better. But since a management shift the place seems on its way up again. Staff is cheerful. The current seating, though still outdoors-only, means you don’t have to eat standing up on busy days. And the menu has greatly expanded. Along with Dogma’s signature global dogs like the Chicago (served in the traditional style with mustard, onions, fresh tomato, sport peppers, celery salt and a pickle), and the South American-inspired Tropicale (topped with Russian dressing-like Dogma sauce, mozzarella, bacon, pineapple and crushed potato chips), there are regional American sandwiches that go way beyond Philly cheesesteaks, plus burgers, grilled chicken and a much fuller range of favorite outdoor summer snacks. And attention non-carnivores: veggie dogs, initially an option but removed during a bad spell, are back.
