As culinary greats and foodies gather for the Food Network & Cooking Channel New York City Wine & Food Festival presented by Coca-Cola the food is plentiful.

While you might think the festival revolved around only delicate bites, think again.

Street food was an unlikely trend.

How fitting that at the New York event, the hot dog would be the star of the menu.

The best of both worlds collided at the Haute Dogs & Champagne event hosted by chef Robert Irvine.

Chefs served up every kind of brat, dog and sausage you can think of.

Which paired perfectly with the endless flowing flutes of champagne.

Shake Shack, might be known for their burgers but their hot dogs came first.

When the Shack opened in 2001, the company began by selling hotdogs and lemonade.

At the NYCWFF, they took their hot dogs to the next level -- by topping them with caviar.

For those with a sweet tooth, Morgenstern's Finest Ice Cream covered all the bases.

The shop created what might be the first ice cream hot dog.

It looks exactly like a hot dog including -- sauerkraut, ketchup and mustard.

By the looks of it, the world has been trying to jazz up their hotdogs for a while now.

The Pittsburg Pirates baseball team sells an insane hotdog -- featuring macaroni, Cracker Jacks, jalapeños and caramel sauce.

And in Australia a food truck selling a $100 hotdog was the star of the 2016 Melbourne Good Food and Wine show.

Who knows, maybe this hotdog-hamberger hybrid will be next.
