We had to talk about this place because come on, with a name like that, you've got to wonder what this new go-to Newton pop-up is all about! The Savage Wiener was born out of the love for good food with the main focus being hot dogs (now you're starting to understand). However, with a surplus of great places in the Boston-area to grab a frankfurter, the competition to be the top dog is kind of like finding a bone in a haystack; rather difficult. But that won't stop owner and longtime Newton Centre resident, Jim Lowenstern! Lowenstern believes that their unique blend of spices coupled with carefully selected toppings gives their hot dogs a unique twist on the classic hot dog experience, making them a standout amongst the competition, and we agree!
The Savage Wiener's gourmet hot dogs are a nod to old-world craftsmanship, while embracing today’s state-of-the-art smokehouses. Each bite is a one-of-a-kind experience for your taste-buds. Since this is jus a pop-up concept, for now, The Savage Wiener is located within Sandwich Works in Newton Centre, 827 Beacon Street. If you choose to dine-in, you can get you wiener served up four ways: straight up, with spicy mustard, with spicy mustard, secret relish and onions or with all the savage toppings. And if you can't get enough of these delicious dogs, they allow you to order as many as you need to feed your cravings at home as well!
Lowenstern isn't just stopping at hot dogs. At the opposite end of the food spectrum, in the pastry category, he offers a "savage muffin top"; a name that fits right in to his off-colored branding theme. The Savage Wiener officially opened for business with a launch party last Thursday night, July 14, and more details about hours of operation going forward will be coming to their website soon. And as for expansion, keep a eye out for Lowenstern who has said the idea of a standalone concept for The Savage Wiener is one that he sees in the near future.
Who let the dogs out? The Savage Wiener did. Devour the details of a hot dog experience like no other and be sure to thank Jim Lowenstern as you're doing so!
