Anywhere in the city that sells them? I searched the boards but no luck.

    Schaller & Weber on the UES.

      Depending on where you live you can get them in many places as Jungmann mentioned. If you are near the UES I would highly recommend going into the store as it is a great place to shop and get all sorts of other German and European goods that would go well with the sausage.

      In Manhattan, Schaller & Weber 1654 Second Avenue @ 86th Street New York, New York 1002 Phone: (212) 879-3047. If you really mean "the city" instead of just Manhattan, ask also on the Outer Boroughs board as there are a number of Polish places in Brooklyn that also sell German style sausages and some German places in Ridgewood Queens although I understand that Karl Ehmer has either closed or will be closing soon.

        Thanks, everyone. Will try Schaller & Weber (Manhattan is slightly more convenient, as I'm in the Bronx)

          Not sure where you are in the Bronx but the 4,5,6 all stop a few blocks away. There is also Two Red Hens bakery next door and Heidelberg Restaurant, a real old school German place. Sit at the bar a and grab a beer after shopping.

            Ahh, Heidelberg! Had many good dinners there back in the 90's. Happy memories.

            Hubby and I now prefer Zum Schneider for the outdoor seating and the relaxed ambiance.

              I agree, I think the food at Zum Schneider is better as well. I love that they sell salted radish as an appetizer and that they use daikon instead of the normal kind. Goes so well with beer.

              But if you are taking the train to Schaller and Webber, Heidelberg works too

        Schaller & Weber is available throughout the borough. I've seen many of the popular varieties at the deli also at Whole Foods and Zabar's. I believe Dean & Delucca also carries them.

          Yes, but the store carries things that are not mass produced - in other words only available at the store. For example their house-made fresh liverwurst, which I love.

            I'll have to try the liverwurst. I usually leave loaded with sülze and blutwurst. Have you tried the prepared food in the warmer above the deli case?

                Make sure you ask for the house-made fresh liverwurst.

                Also at the Hungarian Market a few blocks south - they make an incredible liverwurst too, it's mixed with rice and it's fantastic. They are huge though, fwiw.

                  Yup, the Hungarian Meat Market is worth going to for the smokehouse aroma alone. It's a tad pricey for some items, but the quality is unsurpassed.

            What specifically do you mean by "authentic"?

              I heard the Biergarten by the Standard hotel in the meatpacking district has yummy sausages, I don't know how authentic though. Stay away from the German meat stand/ deli inside Grand Central market. I bought several sausages there and most of them were old, meaning sold beyond their selling date. My go- to place is Warsaw in Stamford, ct off Washington Blvd. All of their meats are delicious.

                Koglin (used to be in Grand Central) closed in January.

                Warsaw Deli in Stamford specialized in Polish products.

                  they do but I recognized a lot of the meats and cheeses, meaning they have similar products in Poland I suppose. Very fresh and great prices.

                Also try Morschers in Glendale, Queens. I know it's Queens on the Manhattan board but there is life after Schaller and Weber. http://www.morschersporkstore.com/.
