It's Time for Kafana's Hibernation Fare

Max Falkowitz Post a comment

If the cold weather alone doesn't convince you, the long walk to Avenue C just might; cold snaps like this call for something like braised beans and sausage, and Kafana, a tiny Serbian spot in Alphabet City, does especially good versions of both. More

See How the Sausage Gets Made at Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria

Behind the Scenes Clay Williams 9 comments

Meet Bernardo Flores. He's the master butcher at Il Buco Alimentari e Vineria, the Italian market and restaurant that's continued to impress us with the breadth of its breakfast, bread, dinner, dessert, and charcuterie. I got to watch Bernardo in action as he made fresh sausage, dry salumi, and other cured items of deliciousness from several hundred pounds of hogs. Take a look inside to see. More

Bronx Eats: Fresh Sausages from Vincent's, Fordham-Belmont

Bronx Eats Chris E. Crowley 1 comment

Vincent's make a sly slab bacon, if that's your thing. But me? I think bacon is easy. Sausages, in their many and myriad forms, can be just so much more delicious—even fresh ones. And Vincent's has some particularly tasty sausages, very much worthy of your turkey day table. More

Lauren Rothman 2 comments

When it opened in 1992, Jubilat Provisions' neighborhood of south Park Slope was heavily Polish. Though the neighborhood has changed and is now also home to Latin American immigrants and native-born Americans, Jubilat's extensive selection of housemade, house-cured meats has kept the locals coming in for two decades.

A Sandwich a Day: Sausage of the Day at Butcher Bar in Astoria

A Sandwich a Day Max Falkowitz 1 comment

Go to Butcher Bar for the barbecue, and go back again for the barbecue you missed the first time. Just don't miss any of the excellent housemade sausage on either of your mandatory visits. Smoked meat may take center stage here, but the tender, highly seasoned sausage in a snappy casing is really a beautiful thing. Butcher Bar rotates their sausage selection daily, but you can usually find sweet and hot (my favorite) Italian sausages in the display case. More

Lunch Today: Loukaniko at Souvlaki GR

Lunch Today Max Falkowitz 1 comment

The loukaniko ($10) at Souvlaki GR is worthy champion of the loukaniko tradition. Pick your seasoning—orange or leek (we went with the former)—and get ready for a hulking plate of crisp, sliced sausage and plenty of fries. A side of tzatziki for dipping is a must. Take note that loukaniko is supposed to be a little dry and granular, but that just means it's more meaty than fatty. And a little cured meat funky in the best of ways. More

The Breakfast of Chumps As Alan Richman recently said, there is little worth eating beyond the pastrami, knockwurst, and hot dogs at the iconic Katz's Deli. Perhaps this isn't surprising. It is a bit like going to Peter Luger and... More

Smokin' Smoked Sausage

Ed Levine 1 comment

For me, the one revelation at the Big Apple Barbecue Block Party was the Southside Market's Smoked Beef Sausage. They call it "Elgin Hot Sausage," but in actuality it doesn't have much of a kick at all. I spent a... More

I'm in love with DiPaola's Turkey Sausage

Ed Levine Post a comment

I find most chicken and/or turkey sausage dry and tasteless. So when I discovered DiPaola's Turkey Sausage at my local greenmarket a couple of years ago, I was thrilled. DiPaola is a local poultry farm located in Trenton, NJ. Its... More
