We sit on our ass all day at the office, so it's never a big deal for us to take lunch standing up, and the Haute Dog, in its garage-y stall on Falls is our fave place to not pull up a chair and tuck in to one (OK, sometimes two) of their inventive and crazy-delicious tube steaks such as the roasted garlic chicken dog with hummus, the reuben dog, or a smoked country sausage and barbecued pork dog. Our go-to pup is the standard "signature" Black Angus hot dog with tomato-and-onion jam and dijon mustard, but don't pass up a chance to devour a duck dog with peach-apricot compote(!?!) if you see it offered as a special. If you really need to sit, don't worry, Haute Dog is good neighbors with the nice folks at the Bonjour Bakery Café, and you can park it on their porch while you down your dog.
