The Jean-Georges ‘Haute Dog’ Stand is Re-Opening at The Mark Hotel

 

 

 

When you’ve been in lockdown for three months, it’s funny how it really does become about the little things. After all, we’ve never seen so many people get so excited about simply getting a haircut—but such are these times.

A much bigger deal is the slow re-opening of hotels in New York, which not only welcome guests from around the globe, but also provide a central focus of NYC social life—especially for those of us who love chatting up a new foreign friend over a particularly well-made martini. The Mark is one of those hotels, still independent of all corporate interference, and an irreplaceable part of the cultural fabric of the Upper East Side. We’ve surely been known to while away no small number of evenings at its eponymous bar—and it’s The Mark Restaurant by Jean-Georges is one of Gotham’s most coveted dining experiences.

 

 

But getting back those little things, we were inordinately excited to discover that the exalted chef’s beloved Haute Dog stand will be returning, making for that ideal afternoon (sort of) meal after a morning of of taking in the art at The Whitney or The Met (The Mark is actually a most-favored bolthole for celebs attending the annual Gala). And they’re amazingly affordable, at just $6 each.

“It’s a New York City street food staple,” says JGV, “and it’s practical. I also liked that I could dress it up a bit to differentiate from the rest of the street ‘dogs. It’s the perfect bite for Mark guests and neighbors to grab before heading to [a museum] or Central Park.”

The restaurant is already open for room service, pickup and delivery—but an opening date for Haute Dog is still imminent.
