When it comes to classic street food in New York, for my money you just can’t beat a Sabrett hot dog with sauerkraut and mustard. So I am personally excited about the news that the Norwegian Breakaway, the line’s newest ship, will feature Sabrett Hot Dogs and Brooklyn Lager beer. Further enhancing the ship’s ties to New York City, its year-round homeport, these newly-announced offerings provide guests with a taste of the Big Apple at sea.
Located on the Waterfront, pool deck and forward deck, three Sabrett hot dog carts will sport the brand’s iconic yellow and blue umbrellas and offer up the same all-beef frankfurters that New Yorkers have voted the #1 hot dog for more than 50 years, renowned for the famous snap! of their natural casing. The carts on Norwegian Breakaway will also include the company’s famous condiments, including mustard, sauerkraut, relish, and onions in a delicious tomato sauce, so guests can order their complimentary Sabrett hot dog “all the way” (complete with all the toppings).
“As a New Yorker, I’ve been a fan of Sabrett’s. Since we are launching New York’s ship, it made complete sense to bring New York’s favorite hot dog to Norwegian Breakaway,” said Kevin Sheehan, CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line. “With Sabrett hot dogs and Brooklyn Lager beer, our guests will truly get a real taste of the city as a part of their whole New York experience while onboard.”
“Sabrett is a New York institution, offering our famous all-beef frankfurters to New Yorkers for half a century,” said Mark Rosen, vice president of Sabrett. “We’re so excited to offer our hot dogs on board Norwegian Breakaway and look forward to welcoming New York’s ship to the Sabrett family.”
New York’s award-winning Brooklyn Brewery’s Brooklyn Lager beer will also be offered on Norwegian Breakaway in Uptown Bar & Grill. Lager beer in the “Vienna” style, Brooklyn Lager’s amber-gold color and firm malt center are supported by a refreshing bitterness and floral hop aroma. The aromatic qualities of the beer are enhanced by “dry-hopping”, the centuries-old practice of steeping the beer with fresh hops as it undergoes a long, cold maturation. The result is a wonderfully flavorful beer, smooth, refreshing and very versatile with food.
