Hot & Sweet Italian Sausage
Where can I find some good 'ole NY style Italian 'sawsege'both sweet & hot for my weekend grillfest? Thnx.
After seeing an LA Times article I went to Bob's Market in Santa Monica where there house made sausages are $3.99 a pound and are much better than Bristol Farms which has good sausages which are more expensive.

Monte Carlo/Pinocchio in Burbank (3103 Magnolia)
Some good suggestions here. I'll toss in my personal fav...the best sausage I have ever had...period. Sabatino's Lido Shipyard Sausage Company in Newport Beach. Hard as heck to find, well worth the drive for brunch, lunch or dinner, and the best part is getting some fresh sausage to go. Pricey at $5/lb or so, but I've never had sausage this good before.
I've seen a couple of recs here for Bristol Farms italian sausage. It is by no means NY style italian sausage, though. The grind isn't coarse enough, the fat content is way too low and the seasoning is off. Way too heavy on the oregano the couple of times I've tried it. If anything the anise should be out front.
I have made special trips to the Vera's shop Sorrento in Culver City for their sweet Italian sausage. My only regret is that I didn't buy more and freeze them, because I'm not in Culver City too often. I have not asked if they make them themselves however, or who does. But they are GOOD, and my mama is from the Bronx so I think I should know. I will ask who makes them next time I go. Your post is making me want to go....
