Gourmet hot dog shop Haute Dog and Fries is planning to open an Arlington location at some point next year.
The Purcellville, Va. restaurant is in the midst of scouting out available storefronts in Arlington County, according to co-owner Pamela Swanson.
“We are currently looking at a few different locations in Arlington but haven’t decided on one particular spot as of yet,” Swanson said. “We would like to confirm a location as soon as possible and be open within the next few months.”
Swanson, an Arlington native, said they’ve been primarily focused on locations in North Arlington, but haven’t ruled anything out.
Haute Dog and Fries serves signature hot dogs like the N.Y. Reuben (sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, brown mustard), the Bombshell (caramelized onions, mango, pineapple, jalapenos) and the Chicago Dog (onions, tomato, hot peppers, pickle relish, dill pickle, mustard, celery salt). It also serves local Italian sausage, kielbasa and bratwurst produced in Loudoun County, as well as diner fare like cheeseburger sliders, fish and chips and loaded nachos.
