Wurstkuche, Los Angeles, CA

Wurstkuche Restaurant Review

: Gourmet and exotic grilled sausages can be found at Wurstküche, opened by cousins Joseph Pitruzzelli and Tyler Wilson. Pitruzzelli, a designer by trade, has created an edgy industrial space that fits in with the neighborhood, the gradually transforming Toy District. Line up and order grilled sausages featuring combinations like buffalo with chipotle; rattlesnake with jalapeño; rabbit, veal and pork seasoned with white wine; and alligator and hickory-smoked pork andouille. There's also sweet and hot Italian, bockwurst and bratwurst for traditionalists. Double-dipped Belgian fries are the showcased side dish here, with sauces ranging from the semi-traditional (chipotle mayo, ranch) to the somewhat exotic (Thai peanut, curry ketchup). Wash it all down with one of the many imported beers on tap, or with a specialty soda from Fentimans or Reed’s. A DJ in the dining room helps keep customers entertained. Also located at 623 Lincoln Blvd., Venice, 213-687-4444.
