Blooms, Burgers and Bark


Today's sunny weather was perfect for a long walk to Bark, my favorite place for hot dogs. Walking along Prospect Park West with Karlyn and Fox, we were all happy to see so many flowers and trees starting to bloom, little pops of color leading the way and reminding us that winter really is over. At Bark, I planned on getting a hot dog, but when Karlyn told me she really likes their cheeseburgers, I decided to try one. A mix of short rib, chuck and pork jowl, it was cooked and seasoned perfectly, topped with pickles, sharp cheddar, shredded lettuce and a special sauce and wedged between a soft and squishy potato roll, the best bread for a burger if you ask me. If I'd had my camera, I would have taken a picture, but I was too busy feeding Leo fries and replenishing Nico's ketchup anyway. Karlyn took all of these with her iPhone.

Nico and Fox sat at their own table and didn't eat much, but rather than run around and hide under people's tables, they sat still for a while, chit chatting about condiments. I'm all about Bark's hot dogs, but now that I know how good their burgers are, I'll be torn next time I'm back. You can find a more detailed review and photos of their burger here. I'm still craving one of their hot dogs, but Karlyn told me about this family bike ride on Sunday to support the Prospect Park West bike lane. Bark will be giving away free dogs at the finish line. Sounds like it's time to dust it off our bikes and take the boys for a ride.

Would you believe I've been to Bark several times and never had a hot dog because I always get a burger? It's pretty embarrassing for a food blogger to not get the house specialty. But the first time I went I just wasn't in the mood for a hot dog and the burger turned out to be so amazing that, well...

Anne, you have to try the hot dogs! Bark is the place that got me to realize just how great they are.
