Champagne and hot dog restaurant

A new restaurant is to open in London serving Champagne and hot dogs.

Bubbledogs will offer a choice of 10 hot dogs and will serve grower Champagnes as well as sparkling wines from around the world including Gruet, from New Mexico.

James Knappett, a formerly head chef at Marcus Wareing at the Berkeley, is heading the new venture with his wife, Sandia Chang.

The inspiration for the London restaurant is Crif Dogs in New York’s East Village, a hot-dog cafe with a cocktail lounge reached through a secret door.

Many different foods can be matched with Champagne, we have compiled a list with help from our social media followers. 

Bubbledogs is scheduled to open on Charlotte Street, Fitzrovia, in June.

Prices are set to start at about £6 a glass and the same for a hot dog.

The hot dog varieties include the BLT with truffle mayo and caramelized lettuce; and the José with guacamole, sour cream, salsa and jalapenos.

Diners seeking more sophisticated fare will be seated at a separate kitchen table where Knappett will cook for them.

In the separate space, Knappett will prepare and serve contemporary European dishes and discuss them with diners.

The plan is for three-or-five-course lunchtime menus, starting at £25 and an evening menu costing £50

The wine list will consist of 100-150 bins, mainly lesser-known fine wines and small producers.

Already in London diners can bathe in Champagne after Supperclub restaurant announced opening a dedicated Bellini Bar in June.
