My husband introduced me to this restaurant this week finally. He loves the currywurst there and the Koelsch beer. He is from Cologne and this is something we miss most about Germany, beer and wurst. If you are going this winter try the Gluehwein as...More

This must be the only German bratwurst place in NYC where being German is looked down upon by the wait staff. Makes you wonder about the authenticity of this place. Otherwise a cute place, just avoid the ladies behind the bar.

I recently visited a friend in NYC who used to live on 7th Street between 1st and A. She took me on a tour of the East Village, stopping at one of her old favourites for a bratwurst and a beer: Wechsler's on 1st Avenue....More

This great little place makes me miss my travels in Germany. Their Nürnberger bratwurst is my usual order: four links on a crusty roll with hot mustard in the side. Slather it on and you're as close as you can get in America to the...More

Called in for a currywurst, bratwurst, fries and washed down with paulaner beer. Small communal seating arrangement, great friendly service, cosy atmosphere, excellent sausages and very affordable.

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
