- Bark Hot Dogs
474 Bergen St., nr. Flatbush Ave., Park Slope; 718-789-1939
Partial as we are to the chef-tribute haute dogs at PDT, it’s nice to have a no-reservation-required option. But Bark is more than that: It’s a sign of the artisanal-fast-food times. Beef-and-pork franks with a natural casing and a notable snap come from an upstate Austrian sausage maven, and as they’re griddled, they’re lovingly basted with smoked lard butter, then deposited in a butter-toasted split-top Pepperidge Farm bun. Garnishes are made in-house and taste that way, from oak-barrel-aged sauerkraut to baked heirloom beans. The brisket chili is especially satisfying, and so, therefore, is the chili-cheese dog, distinguished by Grafton Cheddar and chopped onion that likely came from a small tri-state farm, not the Sysco truck. Pair it with a growler of Sixpoint Bark Red Ale or an Il Laboratorio del Gelato milkshake, and ruin yourself for Sabretts forever.
