THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Sparky's American Food Restaurant Review

: Owner Brian Benavidez, a victim of dot-com fallout, has reinvented himself as the king of gourmet fast food. The hot dogs are from Niman Ranch, the chewy Euro-style buns are custom baked in Manhattan, and the cheese in the macaroni is organic. You can get your wieners in many styles---dressed in house-made chili, wearing spicy ketchup and relish---in a suitably stylish room where industrial chic (concrete walls) meets Americana (old high school lockers). Benavidez knows his clientele: Sparky’s is open until midnight every night to accommodate the booze-soaked crowds trawling this part of Brooklyn looking for a quick bite.
