Peter Newman never really thought he'd be running Poughkeepsie's iconic hot dog business, Noshi's Coney Island.

When asked by Hudson Valley EATS how he got into the hot dog business, he said "it was a quick surprise. It was for sale and I just happened to pop in, had lunch with my wife, sat here, made my observations. It's small, it's quaint, it's me, it's personalized."

Like many restaurateurs, his introduction to the business was as a dishwasher when he was 15. He's got a business background from college as well as a culinary background. After stints in corporate dining, and high education he decided it was time to strike out on his own.

One of the attractions of Noshi's was that "there's nothing else here like it, and that's what drew me to it. It's comfort food, it's hot dogs and burgers. I didn't make it better, I enhanced it."

That was two years ago and since then he's expanded the menu without losing sight of what made Noshi's, Noshi's - their dogs. Now you can have them in any way, from a breakfast dog (scrambled eggs and cheese) to a dessert dog (peanut butter, bacon, whipped cream and chocolate sauce) and anything in between, including all the classics.

Their most popular hot dog is a chili (mild or spicy) dog but some of their special dogs are right up there.

Tennessee buffalo (Buffalo chicken, touch of Jack Daniels and blue cheese), Ptown (grilled mushrooms, bacon with BBQ and cheese sauce), Keg (peppers, onions, mayo and ketchup, created by a customer), Texas bell (deep fried stuffed with cheese, wrapped in bacon and drizzled with ranch dressing) and the classic corn dog.

Peter has added veggie and vegan dogs, gluten free buns and offers a gluten free mac & cheese.

If you're not in the mood for a dog, no worries...
