Seattle Dog

  • Hadley Longe
  • Sold grilled vegetarian bagels from a pushcard in Carbondale Illinois
  • Moved to Seattle and ran deli cart between J&M and Central Tavern 
  • “I didn’t want to sell out and be a hot dog vendor,” Long said. But he had these bialy sticks, essentially bagels shaped like hot dog buns. He put cream cheese and a hot dog on them.
  • Over time, other vendors started putting cream cheese and grilled onions on their hot dogs. It got the name Seattle dog.
