    Drinks and desserts were awesome, main dish was ok. Service was good except for our waitress who was impatient, rolled her eyes at our questions, took our plate without asking if we were finished, etc

    Street food per buongustai. Hot-Dog spettacolari (v.Korean)!

    Always get the poutine (skip the egg) the rest is up to you. But you should probably get the mussels.

    Check out Senate as it was featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives for funky pub where a husband/wife duo's dishing out all kinds of creative hot dogs Read more

    Get the fried egg on top of the pontine. If you're going to be decadent, might as well go all the way.

    The bone marrow is an orgasm in my mouth.

    Guaranteed 1hr wait during weekends or summer. 2hrs if you have a big group. Get the Lindsay Lohan!

    Get the senate burger. Also the all male staff is easy on the eyes :)

    Wonderful hot dogs. I generally suggest trying the specials. The truffle fries have an excellent truffle flavor, but the actual fries look and taste like frozen, store bought potatoes.

    Great and filling hotdogs!

    Sit at the bar to enjoy mtg some friendly lifers + transplants, alike. The vegetarian dog can be ordered either Chicago-style or Nick Lachey's way. The bartender rec'd the former: worth every bite!

  • Charlie R.

    The poutine here is to die for.

    Charlie Rambles · September 14, 2013
  • Serious Eats

    Stacked hotdogs play alongside full-flavored entrees and doughy pretzel-beignets, all balanced off by smart cocktails and a hefty beer menu at Chef Dan Wright's small upscale pub.

    The Dan Korman is great - whether you're vegetarian or not it's worth a try! Also make sure to try the truffle fries.

    Don't try to customize or order off menu. I asked for a simple side salad and was told, "this is a chef owned resturant. People enjoy my creations as I make them."

    Do not miss the poutine... There's just no reason for it!

    Good food but way too expensive. Brunch for 2 with a few bloody marys was over $70 after the gratuity, which is automatically included
