Looking Inside “Brews and Dogs” at 188 Allen Street
Come fall, two similar establishments will spark a Lower East Side hot dog war. Both businesses are located within spitting distance at the head of Allen Street.
Last week, we exclusively reported that a new German “fast-food biergarten” was opening at 188 Allen Street. The former home of Lea had been under wraps since February, but finally revealed its wooden glory to the neighborhood. There is more street-level intel flowing into Boogie HQ about the endeavor. Sources tell us that the rustic joint is dubbed “Brews and Dogs,” specializing in just that. Doors were completely open yesterday evening, so we obliged. One dude inside, presumably a principal, didn’t confirm the name but nevertheless said that a launch was within a few days.
Whether named Brews and Dogs or not, the battle for brats on upper Allen has begun. Indeed, Colombian hot dog joint Los Perros Locos should itself arrive sometime in October. Ready the mustard guns and sauerkraut grenades.
