This adventurous eatery boldly combines hot dogs with crémant and cava. One sneaky peek of the owner’s eye on Frank & Brut Café in Antwerp was enough to make chef Vitaly Vorobyev and restaurateur Gleb Berezhnoy realize that Moscow misses a similar place.
There are 8 hot dogs on the menu, each ironically named after cult movies. The timeless classic hotdog recipe is represented by the Godfather (≈4$), and the retro version with dried tomatoes, Grana Padano and arugula by Fellini (≈6$). The Caucasian Prisoner (≈7$) refers to the Russian cinema, while the biggest hot dog on the list is called the Iron Arni (≈7$). By the way, all sausages and buns here are homemade. You can order any hot dog on a steamed bun or sans – the naked dog. Despite the name of this place, there is more to the menu than just hot dogs, you’ll also find burgers, tacos, beef ribs and other quasi-street food.
The wine list is concise and to the point; it includes champagne, sparkling wines and cocktails based on them. It was put together by the famous sommelier Leonid Sternik. In Hot Dog & Brut you can composedly drink a glass of Italian sparkling (≈4$) or a 200 ml Moët & Сhandon (≈31$). However, if you feel like a making a gesture, you can buy a round of champagne for every guest and end up with a 170$ bill.
The guests are not only invited to have champagne with hot dogs, but also do so in a rather ascetic entourage — seated on plastic chairs. The industrial styled chairs are made from decorative plaster, brass, and small mirrors and are intended as another daring ingredient in this spot’s concept.
Minimalistic street food concept with a sprinkle of glam from the bubbly — just the perfect 21st century dining experience.
