Forest Pork Store, Huntington Station

For those planning to throw their own Oktoberfest party, a trip to Forest Pork Store is necessary. This spot, praised for its tastiness, quality and authenticity, has operated since 1948 in Ridgewood, Queens. The Huntington location opened in 1972 expanding its “traditional old world butcher shop.” Among the meat products are several different types of German sausages made using authentic recipes. Think Bratwurst made of pork, Knackwurst with a touch of garlic and the smoked Krainerwurst made from pork and beef. Phone: 631-423-2574 | Address: 380 E Jericho Turnpike Click to eat 

Zum Schneider, Montauk

Bavarian sausage has been a hit on the East End since this popular New York City spot expanded there in 2012. Several options are on the menu including Wurstplatte (three different boiled Bavarian sausages served with sauerkraut and potato salad) and Schweinswürst’l (five grilled Nürnberg sausages). And this place is the real deal. Owner Sylvester Schneider opened the first location in Alphabet City in 2000 as a result of homesickness and a desire to have authentic German/Bavarian food at his disposal.

The Village Lanterne, Lindenhurst

Stepping into The Village Lanterne it’s hard to escape the old world charm. Wooden accents, instruments on the walls and hanging plants are just some of the intriguing elements. The rest is in the food—and that includes German sausages. Dig into Bratwurst, Weisswurst, Bauernwurst or Knackwurst while drinking brews made on the premises. Phone: 631-225-1690 | Address: 155 N Wellwood Ave Click to eat
