Bark seeks to elevate hot dogs to gourmet status, and partly succeeds. The franks are proprietary links made near Syracuse, New York, with a pork-beef combo, exhibiting a thrilling snap when you bite into them. The toppings stay on the conservative side (our fave is the "pickle dog"), and the weenies come in at around $5 each, which may seem a little steep. You can probably recoup some of that cost if you order one of the off-price beers. (Taps come from nearby Six Point Ales in Red Hook.) While the onion rings suck, the fries--especially the gravy-cheese "disco fries"--are definitely worth ordering. A handful of seasonal specials (such as the sandwich of fried pork shoulder, jowl, and cheek) betray a greater ambition than just wieners.
