I guess pop-ups aren't just for the nouveau anymore. Maestro Sausage Company, an LA fine Italian sausage institution since forever, will offer their own sausage sandwiches for the first time in 38 years at the upcoming LA Beer Week. Led by Executive Chef Andres Moya of South Pasadena's Griffins of Kinsale and The Foundry Chef Josh McKnight, the one day pop-up will feature three Maestro special sausage sandwiches (menu below).
Founded by Domenico "Maestro" Pontrelli, MSC originated in the Eastside Market Italian Deli in the roaring '20s, but eventually left the Market (and sandwiches) in 1974 to pursue manufacturing possibilities. Now headquartered in Vernon, Maestro sausages today can be found at many of LA's top Italian grocers (Bay Cities, Sorrento Italian Market, Eagle Rock Italian Bakery) and fine Italian and pizza joints (Vito's, Bottega Louie), amongst many other locations.
Truth be told: the sausage is darn delicious and the perfect compliment to all the beer you're going to consume. Don't trust my word? Take this dude's. Besides, all sausage sandwich proceeds benefit charity! You're eating sausage and getting credit for philanthropy!
