From the same chef behind Corazón y Miel comes Picnik, an artisanal sausage and craft beer spot in Old Town Pasadena. A cozy biergarden-like set up outside melds into an indoor gastropub; choose where you want to sit after ordering your meal at the counter. The house-made sausages at Picnik range from a classic Bratwurst to a "Head to Tail" (pig's head, ears, tongue and feet), and you can pick from toppings like pickled red cabbage and market peppers. One stellar option: the Sweet Sicilian, featuring chile flakes, fennel and basil on a plump strip of sausage.
