On tonight’s WGN News at Five, I drew the difficult job of taste testing one of Chicago’s newest hot dog joints – The Haute & The Dog. It’s the latest creation from restauranteur Dion Antic, who spent three years in this same location with Bagels On Damen. He’s transformed the space into a rustic-looking hot dog joint,offering fancy creations. Hence the “haute.”
I was able to sample the Green Chili Mac & Cheese dog today – the peppers offering a touch of heat, but never overpowering the flavor from the dog. My feature will be posted above, and you can see some photos I snapped below. If you end up going, be sure to leave a comment and tell me what you thought!
