How much would you pay for a hot dog?

After a lovely meal out on Saturday evening, we decided to go to the Loch Bar at the Four Seasons in Baltimore  It is a lovely setting at the harbor, so we did not mind the price drinks or the valet parking fee.  When I looked at the bar menu, I could not believe the $16.00 for a hot dog!  It was described as a "foot long wagyu' hot dog with sweet pepper relish, daikon kimchi, pickled shallots, and gochujang aioli.   
 
Thank goodness, I will be able to eat a few Rutt dogs in New Jersey next month!

    ... even if that were the genuine Japanese article, which it isn't, how on earth could one grind and season it into something resembling a hot dog while still keeping the characteristics that make that kind of beef crazily expensive?

    To answer the question of the thread: No more than $8 under any circumstance barring actual starvation.

    No one buys that hotdog, their employers do. I figure most of those dining there are on an expense account. A meal with a $16 entree at the Four Seasons probably makes you look like a frugal traveler to the boss.

    I guess I might pay 4 or 5 bucks, depending on the dog. No way am I paying for fake wagyu made into a hotdog. I didn't even get to eat that stuff when I lived in Kobe.

    Your first mistake was going into Baltimore.
     
    I've paid $7.50 for the jumbo kosher dog on a challah roll at Edmart.

    I'd gladly pay the $5 for these jumbo dogs, a natural casing dog created for the windmill by Sabretts,not a waterdog,but a giant griller. One of the best dogs I've ever had!!

    The Windmill dog is a standard Sabrett, not 'created' for Windmill.  I like them, and if you ask they'll toss it on the char grill or deep fryer or both.

    Not according to Windmill or this article. Made exclusively for Wondmill, different spices....

    I don't think they are the standard Sabrett , I get a  " Care Package " from NJ every year for Xmas , A package of each style.
