First hamburgers, now it’s a hot dog war that’s inspiring gourmet restaurants to open across the New Orleans area.

The latest place is called Fat City Franks Nola.  As its name implies, it’s in Fat City.

Owner Allen Bryant says the neighborhood is a perfect spot for his new gourmet dogs.

“I saw the vibe of Fat City coming back as a restaurant district, not a bar district.  So I always wanted a simple restaurant.  And hot dogs and french fries are about as simple as it gets until you put the New Orleans twist on it,” Bryant told WGNO News.

The restaurant’s official grand opening was set for Saturday, August 10.
