A popular New York City hot dog restaurant has opened its first location outside of the Big Apple.
According to CultureMap Austin, Schaller’s Stube Sausage Bar opened earlier this week at the corner of Third Street and Congress Avenue (suspiciously close to Austin’s other hot dog restaurant, Frank). It’s a temporary location until they open a permanent location at 600 Congress Ave., and another pop-up restaurant will open at upcoming bar Whiskey Tango Foxtrot on West Sixth Street.
The team behind Schaller’s Stube Sausage Bar decided to expand to Austin to "introduce Schaller’s to a younger demographic," according to Eater Austin.
The restaurant’s counter-service bar in New York’s Upper East Side has a variety of bratwurst and other styles of sausage on its menu, including a currywurst, a chorizo sausage, a Cajun-style andouille sausage, a chicken teriyaki brat, kielbasa and more. Eater reports the Austin location offers chili cheese brats and vegan franks and will eventually expand its menu to include items like fries and charcuterie boards.
