Newcomer Link has exploded on to the scene with a huge array of fat-astic, experimental and sometimes utterly unchained sausages. The white subway tiled location gleams like a beacon for the beautiful people of 3rd Street looking for a bite. (Although they do lose points for having a really Google-unfriendly name.) Owners Thomas Benedict and Henry Costa decided to open a place that honors the craft and uses responsibly sourced, antibiotic and hormone-free meats, local produce and fresh-baked breads. This is no biergarten, this is a higher-end, but friendly space that has beers on draft, thoughtful cocktails and a funky menu that takes sausages to new places. As a bonus, the vegan and vegetarian options here are not an afterthought, and are the most satisfying, (read: have flavor and aren't dry) that we sampled. The best of the best here is the pork Hollywood. Natural casing, a medium-coarse grind, and a hefty amount of fat and spice, it's luscious, toothsome and sublime. Pair that with exceptional, roasted Brussels sprouts and you will be elevated to bliss. Read more of L.A.'s best sausages here.
