Louie & Ernie's
1300 Crosby Ave., 718-829-6230, Throgs Neck, The Bronx
The plain slice at Louie & Ernie's is among the best in NYC, loaded with plenty of sharp Parmesan cheese for a tangy bite, but the sausage slice is what you need to get here. The juicy, fennel-studded pork, applied by the fistful, comes from S&D Pork Store, an Italian provisioner located just down the street. You really do need to go native for this one and fold your slice, since the sausage, which is thrown on a plain slice and reheated briefly, tends to fall off otherwise. Think of the slice as a sausage-delivery system—a great one.
