In this episode, we meet the Russos of Coney Island; four brothers who prove that blood is thicker than marinara. Their restaurant, Gargiulo's, has been a mecca for Neapolitan cuisine for over 100 years, serving up house favorites including fusilli with artichoke sauce and chicken scarpariello. Then it's on to the Jersey Shore and a hot dog dynasty. Max's Hot Dogs has been serving up sumptuous foot longs since 1928 and has been run by the Maybaum family for three generations. Here, Steve lets us in on a secret chili dog ingredient and we see how these old-school dogs have learned new tricks. Next up, the Mediterranean may be thousands of miles from New York City, but the incredible tastes of Cyprus and Greece are cooking at Zenon Taverna in Queens. Steve learns how to make this family's famous char-grilled octopus and rolls his own grape leaves with this huge Greek family.
