Wechsler's Restaurant Review

: This minuscule German eatery is well poised for a post pub crawl bite, but that would be underselling it. Wechsler’s does one thing, and does it very well: wurst, and in fact there are half a dozen varieties of the sausage available, all authentically griddled, sliced, and served with dipping sauces. The centerpiece of the operation is the currywurst, sliced into bite-size nibbles and slathered with a sweet sauce that’s part curried chilies and part ketchup. It works, though if you’re not used to it, ask for the sauce on the side. Also worth trying: the traditional bratwurst, juicy and oversize. The crazier wursts, including boar sausages, are interesting but can be a bit dry, so stick with the classics, all washed down with one of the ten German beers available.
