Sayonara ‘Sausage Superstore’

Hot Doug’s to Close in October

Iconic gourmet hot dog spot Hot Doug’s, known for its exotic hot dogs and sausages as well as its duck fat fries, is closing. Earlier this week, an announcement was posted on the restaurant’s website stating, a “permanent vacation begins on Saturday, Oct. 4.” Hot Doug’s owner Doug Sohn tears himself away from the counter to tell us about his decision to close the “sausage superstore.” Sohn talks about “Hot Doug’s: The Book,” and more.
