The Haute & The Dog: Fancy franks at new Wicker Park hot dog joint

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

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!
