    Sad news for fans of Vietnamese beef broth-bathed frankfurters. Y&H has learned that U Street Music Hall, home of the pho dog, is, well, no longer the home of the pho dog. The electronic-music club—which also launched various other unique forms of bar food, including a pork belly doughnut, to varying degrees of success—recently quit serving food, altogether.

    Co-owner Jesse Tittsworth, who created the pho dog in collaboration with Toki Underground chef-owner Erik Bruner-Yang, confirmed the grub stoppage via email. Tittsworth offered no further explanation, just a vague promise of future eats for club-goers: "[W]orkin on substitute food really soon." More details as they become available.

    "It's a shame," said purveyor Scott McIntosh of 13th St. Meats, which supplied the club's sausages. McIntosh notes that U Hall's final frank order was placed a few weeks ago.  "Hopefully we can find another outlet for them down the line," he said.
