Brian Shebairo and Isaac Joseph opened the third location of their frankfurter-centric Crif Dogs today in the West Village. The shop is carrying on the hot dog tradition for 120 Mcdougal St., which most recently housed the short-lived Dogmatic. The space got a refresher and a row of skateboards bearing the art of Andy Warhol, Keith Haring and others. There's bar stool seating for eight along bar, but everything can be packed up to be eaten on the go. The menu — like those at the other locations — features fried franks covered in creative toppings with names like like the "Philly tubesteak," a dog "attired in" cheese, sautéed onions and jalapeños and the "good morning," which is wrapped in bacon, smothered with melted cheese and topped with a fried egg. All dogs can be swapped out for a veggie option. According to the team, "new menu item roll-outs [will come] down the line."
