285 Bedford Ave
What it is: The west coast outpost of a California institution, Rosamunde is known for it’s impressive selection of sausages and craft beers.
Why we love it: Walking down Bedford, you’d never know this unassuming, laid-back bar serves about a billion different types of sausages and beer. Ok, not a billion, but they have more than two dozen artisanal sausage varieties (including a handful of vegan options), 24 rotating craft beers (with 2 nitro taps!), and bartenders who will wait patiently while you mull over the perfect pairing. They also have a build-your-own bloody mary bar, which means they give you a glass with vodka and ice and then usher you over to a table stocked with over a dozen types of bloody mary mixes.
Who to bring: Rosamunde is neutral ground for vegans and meat-lovers alike, so bring your militant vegan friend and your meat snob friend and have them make peace over a communal table.
What to order: Get the grilled sausage on a french roll–the cheddar bratwurst does not disappoint. When you’re done, get another. Be sure to visit the condiment bar to ensure maximum topping satisfaction. As for beer, get a flight and try them all.
Fun fact: Rosamunde also offers cask beer, otherwise known as “real” ale, which probably gets your “real” drunk, right?—Thea Blise
