Yorkville Hungarian Meat Market substitute?

Evidently they closed in the fall due to fire and appear to not be reopening... Any alternatives for their great bacon (and bacon-like) products?

  1. I know they have an outpost in CT but there must be something like it somewhere in town... hopefully

    1. Any number of stores in Greenpoint
      Also try Schaller & Weber

      1. It would break my heart if perhaps the last remaining Hungarian institution were to disappear from what used to be Yorkville. Their specialties -- especially the Hungarian sweet and hot sausages, the deep-fried bacon, and the goulash -- would be greatly missed.

          The deep fried bacon is my son's favorite

            Ok! I just spoke to Laszlo from the Fairfield, CT store who told me the Manhattan outpost will not be re-opening in the immediate future but if there's anything we want to call him at the Fairfield number 203 696 2322 and he is on the Upper East Side every night around 7:30 so we can order and pick up directly from him...

              Thanks for the info, hope they do reopen!
