If you find yourself in the Lincoln Square neighborhood with a hankering for sausage, Gene’s has you covered. This window-lined, two-level, family-owned shop employs European-trained sausage makers to create more than 40 types of sausage. Check out the delicatessen, with its Eastern European specialties—such as Hungarian goulash, cabbage rolls, stuffed duck, and schnitzel—and the extensive selection of imported chocolates and sweets. Then, head up to the roof-top beer garden when the weather’s nice for a bratwurst and a brew.
