Best Wurst - 2001
Forest Pork Store
Until recently, Ridgewood was New York's premier German neighborhood. Now all that's left of it are the butchers, and the best is FOREST PORK STORE. Savor the smoky aroma as you swing through the plate-glass doors, and be regaled by more types of wurst and bologna than you've ever imagined. Also, don't miss the double-smoked bacon. After you make your selection, take your ticket to the silver-haired lady in her fortified corner booth, whom all the jocular butchers refer to as "my grandmother."
