“Hot Dog Dave” Bannon, whose cart is a fixture at Second Street Beach in North Wildwood, moved into the gastronomic mainstream today April 15 opening day for Tom Cat at 430 W. Rio Grande Avenue, an island icon that goes back to the Fifties, he says.
Dave says that the dining spot will be open from 7 a.m. To 3 p.m. weekdays and late nights on the weekend.
The venue closed in ’09 and Bannon says he’ll have the usual breakfast and lunch menus with a daily special.
And don’t worry, bow-wow fans, “Hot Dog Dave” will still be dishing ’em out at Second Street. “I really like it down there,” he says. “It’s like a little community of friends.”
