Hot dogs and Champagne? Shucks! Why didn't we think of that! Bubbledogs has come up with the most unlikely food combo this side of milk shakes and fries—and has hit the Willy Wonka jackpot. Husband-and-wife Sandia Chang and James Knappett combine their respective loves of New York hot dogs and independent grower Champagnes, and have gone back to bubbly basics with a bar menu that pays due homage to both. Classic all-British pork, beef, or vegetarian hot dogs cost
around £8, while the single-estate and handcrafted Champagnes are some of the most reasonable around—think £7 for a glass of Gaston Chiquet. Sit at raised counters surrounded by brick walls, dog cartoons, and cozy log-cabin paneling, and choose hot dogs ranging from a Fourth of July (bacon wrapped with BBQ sauce), a New Yorker (with NY street-cart onions), or The Reuben (with sauerkraut and Russian dressing). There's slaw and sweet-potato fries, but expect a wait; line ups form after 6 pm.
