    Korzo Haus, little brother to the mothership Korzo in Park slope, serves an excellent sausage platter. At $14, it's a steal.

      Pair that with a Korzo organic ale at $4 and you're good to go.

      In addition to DBGB, Cafe Sabarsky has a nice (though more limited) selection of sausages. Also Blaue Gans, though I have not been there yet.

            agreed with DBGB. I'll also throw in the knoblewurst at Katz's

              Just so you have some other choice you could look into Brats, the new place from the owner/Chef of Klee.

            Personally, I think DBGB's a rip-off. At least the sausages & hamburgers are. They're good - just WAY overpriced.

            My sausage choices:
            For make-at-home, pick up some Italian sausages at Faicco's on Bleecker. Then walk down the street to Ottomanelli & Sons and see if they've got any of their housemade venison links.

            Wander over to Despana in Soho and pick up a variety of Spanish ones - their Chorizo is great, and their Morcilla is among the best in town. They serve a few of them at their mini-restaurant at the back, so if you can't wait to get them home you can always have a nosh there.

            I'd get a Kreuz Sausage at Hill Country and a Knoblewurst at Katz's. I could find myself getting a Boudin Noir Sandwich for brunch at Public on the weekend, too.

            For something a little fancier, and if I could get a rezzie, I might hit Babbo for the "Mint Love Letters" with lamb sausage, or something more classic, like the Orecchiette with sweet Italian sausage & broccoli rabe...

              2nd Despana and Hill Country. I love their morcilla.

              I actually like DBGB but more for the charcuterie -- I think the board has a lovely saucisson.

              Oh, and don't forget the Chinese sausage at Kuma Inn served with chili lime dipping sauce.

                Along the same lines, try Esposito's (38th.9th) for some handmade, old-fashioned sausages. Nothing fancy, but there's a reason they are one of the few old-fashioned butcher/pork shops still in business!
