Yesterday, MenuPages Chicago finally had the chance to indulge in the fruits of our creative labors: we were invited to lunch by Lockwood chef Phillip Foss, so we could finally sink tooth into the Lobster Hot Dog that the chef created in response to our thrown-down gauntlet.
When we saw the hot dog listed on the lunch menu — Lockwood’s Famous Lobster Hot Dog - $18 — we nearly jumped with delight. But what Foss and his sous chef Jens Muenchenbach sent out to us for lunchtime consumption was even more delightful — a browser’s sampling of the restaurant’s double-edged culinary sword: haute-ified constructions of greasehole fare, and careful deconstruction of classic French preparations. But we have to admit, the lobster dog was the sweetest bite of all.
