Dog Nuvo temporarily closed as dogfight heats up between hot-dog vendors

From left: Skudra, Roth and Blasco are in a hot dogfight over hot dogs.

Instead of hustling in the kitchen and grilling hot dogs for the lunch crowd, which typically gathers outside the glass doors of Dog Nuvo at 1724 Main, chef Marshall Roth and his business partner, Harry Blasco, sit in the sun at one of the cafe tables in front of the building with their employee, Mandy Skudra.

The customers who walk toward the entrance are confused.

“We’re not open today,” Roth tells the three young businessmen in dress shirts and neatly ironed slacks as they try to open the glass door. “We’re being sued by our former employer.”
