Yes, it's official: Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar—the California-based dog-friendly chain opening its 17th location in Addison's restaurant and franchise hotbed Village on the Parkway on September 23—has a dog menu. A hamburger or chicken and rice plate will set Fido back about $5, which amounts to about $1 per nano-second of dining time. Thankfully, a bowl of water is complimentary and will last all evening.
Along with the dog menu, Lazy Dog will also feature a huge, nonsensical menu for human dogs that sounds astonishingly like the one at new Cali-based arrival Yard House, right down to the fancy riffs on spinach-artichoke dip and Asian-inspired calamari. There will also be craft cocktails galore, a 273-seat indoor dining room modeled after a Rocky Mountain retreat (one that serves wok specialties, gluten free Hawaiian fried rice AND brick oven pizza, naturally) and an enormous dog-friendly patio that seats 154.
According to a press release, the restaurant plans to fill 200 jobs and will offer fundraising opportunities to local non-profits during a private Dedication Dinner upon opening.
