Leberkäse, $5.50

This small, friendly bar in Park Slope opened last year, and it’s still a nice spot for simple, Austrian-style sausage sandwiches and draft beer. The Leberkäse is a thick sandwich of Austrian meatloaf — made with pork, beef, and veal — browned on the flat top. It’s more of a smooth, bouncy salami than American-style meatloaf and just needs a touch of mustard to liven it up.
