Part 4 of a series in honor of National Hot Dog Month.
 

Through July 31, Seasons Lounge and Bar inside Streeterville’s Four Seasons Hotel serves this handmade version of a Chicago hot dog. Hotel chefs grind the meat in a hand-cranked sausage grinder, stuff and and smoke the wiener in-house, then boil and char the frank before serving it on a poppy-seed brioche bun with house-made relish, mustard, pickle, tomatoes, sport peppers, celery salt and house-cut fries. It even comes with their own ketchup (for the fries, only!). Accompanied by a glass of Etesian Pinot Noir, the haute dog and fries is $15.
