Vicious Dogs is a superbly named storefront in the NoHo arts district, on a block dominated by theaters; a few doors down is a big rehearsal studio whose clientele seems to make up most of the regulars - hollow-chested rock dudes inhaling half their weight in veggie dogs and thick, impeccably crunchy, seasoned fries. I'm not sure if Len, the ringmaster of Vicious Dogs, has even been to Illinois, but his version of the Chicago dog is very, very good, a big grilled Vienna hot dog in a soft poppy-seed bun, the green of the Chipco relish as vivid as a Bridget Riley op art painting, a profusion of sport peppers spurting spicy juice with every bite.
