New York City has become the hottest place in the country to smoke pot, with the city’s hottest spot becoming the popular “hot pot” pan at a new restaurant in the heart of the borough.
The pan is part of a trend across the US to offer the hot pot at a casual dining venue, with many restaurants offering their own versions.
But it seems the trend is set to continue.
Hot pot in NYC was #1 in the world for hot pot in 2017.
I just can’t believe this is happening in NYC.#michiganmarijuana #baltimoremarijuana#hotpot pic.twitter.com/8vVQe3Q3Gd — Bexar County Sheriff (@BexarSheriff) December 14, 2018The restaurant, called Hot Pot, opened on December 14 in the former Baltimore City Hall.
Owner Michael Sánchez told ABC News that the pan is an evolution of the “hot pan” concept at his restaurant.
“We are starting to see more restaurants that want to bring hot pot back to New York,” he said.
The new restaurant is also known as the “Hot Pot” pan in Baltis city hall, which is not the original name.
Sánchek said he was inspired by the “big city” in his hometown of Baltimore and wanted to recreate that with his hot pot.
“You have to be in Baltimore to understand the difference between what’s in the pot and what’s out there, and that’s a great city,” he explained.
“When you see the hot pots coming out of New York, it’s a good thing, because that’s not the same as being in Baltimore.
It’s a different experience.”
