Does your pooch like posh nosh? Then one US eatery has just the thing.

America’s first GOURMET restaurant for dogs just opened in San Francisco. The name of it is the French word for “mastiff” . . . it’s called “Dogue“. (It’s pronounced like “dog”, but if a snooty French person said it.)
It opened on September 25th and ONLY serves dog food, but not normal dog food. The founder is a classically trained French chef.
He and his wife opened a doggy daycare in 2015 and started selling their clients homemade dog food he cooked up. So that’s how the idea got started.
All of the restaurant’s food is human-grade. During the week, it operates as a “PAWtisserie” that sells small-but-elaborate pastry treats for dogs that start at $5 each. They also sell “Dogguccinos”.
On Sundays, they do a three-course tasting menu for $75. It includes things like green-lipped mussels with wheatgrass . . . and raw filet mignon with fermented cabbage and a quail egg on top.
