Pampering your dog by treating him or her to a day at the spa is not enough anymore. At least that’s what Chef Rahmi Massarweh thought before opening Dogue, a restaurant dedicated only to serving canines.
The San Francisco-based restaurant opened this September and offers bite-sized treats for your dogs. Aside from bespoke meal plans, the restaurant offers a range of ‘Doggucinos’ and pastries.
Every Sunday, you can treat your dog to the ‘Bone Appetit Cafe Service’, which is a three-course meal that costs $75 (INR 6,000 approx).
Currently, the menu for the special Sunday meal includes a starter of pastured chicken and organic chaga mushroom soup, organic chicken skin waffle with a coconut-charcoal custard, and a main course of grass-fed steak tartare with a quail egg and organic broccoli sprouts.
Massarweh claims that the idea for creating a fine dining restaurant for dogs came after he adopted his first pet with his wife. It was a Mastiff named Grizzly who ultimately inspired the name of the restaurant, which is French for Mastiff. The chef started creating small batches of artisanal food for Grizzly and soon started sharing those meals with other dog-owners, leading him to believe that a restaurant for dogs could actually work.
Massarweh told Food & Wine that it took him over 12 years to develop recipes for his restaurant that were approved by vets. He says he would not feed any dog anything that he wouldn’t serve to his own pets.
Would you treat your dog to a meal at this fine dining restaurant?!
