Bark, the Park Slope-based hot dog specialist, opens its first Manhattan outpost on Bleecker Street this Friday. The new place is much bigger than the Brooklyn original, around 50 seats total, and equipped with a "condiment center," at which diners can load up their sausages with free relishes (sweet pepper, cucumber, or onion), ketchup (fancy Sir Kensington's or Heinz), and mustard. It's still counter service, but also has a separate express line for the beer and wine on tap. And delivery will be available via trendy food delivery startup Caviar.
The menu here is mostly unchanged, and includes various dog options, fries, shakes, and wings. But in time for the opening, the burger (which is also available at the Park Slope location) has gotten an upgrade. It's now made with a blend of Kobe and dry aged beef, and comes topped with a caramelized onion burger sauce. Check out all the options, below:
