Franks 'n' Dawgs
What do you get when you cross a fine-dining chef with a gourmet hot dog concept? Sausages made from fresh pork, beef and lamb and topped with ingredients you'd expect to see at Trump's Sixteen and the sleek, chic Blackbird (where the chef once worked).
The Brunch Dog, a pork loin sausage dressed with Cobb-smoked bacon, fried egg and maple mayo will make you wonder how you'll ever eat grocery-aisle dogs again, and it'll definitely bring you back to this North and Clybourn neighborhood spot. (312) 281-5187; franksndawgs.com
