The Detroit Free Press reports Wednesday that actor-director Mike Binder, who grew up in the Detroit suburb of Birmingham, plans to open the 65-seat restaurant called Coney Dog in May or June. The 24-hour Los Angeles restaurant will feature hot dogs and spicy chili inspired by downtown Detroit's Lafayette Coney Island.
Detroit-style Coney Island hot dogs are known for being slathered in wet chili. Binder says other Detroit staples such as Faygo drinks, Better Made chips and Stroh's beer are expected to be on the menu.
Binder says some other well-known names with Michigan ties are among the restaurant's investors, including comedian Tim Allen and "Spider-Man" director Sam Raimi.
