Golly, I bet more than half the riders of Acela trains originate in New York City, and what will any tourist know you will find being served on the streets from stand-by vendors - yes oh yes, hot dogs.....
1. The Acela First customer is generally not eating off the food carts in the streets of NYC.
2. The food carts don't just sell hot dogs, they sell all kinds of street meat including kebab plates, gyros, cheeseburger, chicken and rice, lamb and rice, halal stuff, etc...
That said, street meat carts can be pretty good if you order something specialized (stay away from basics like hotdog or burgers). I think there are plenty of such carts that are better than the food on Acela First, which borderline sucks. It's not on par with airline first class.
