Every city should have a sausage purveyor like Sabatino's. But the fact that there's one in Newport Beach is good for one and all. Get the World Famous Sizzling Sausage Platter, a goat-cheese-stuffed homemade sausage presented on a searing cast-iron skillet with bell peppers and onions. Sabatino's is Orange County's most glorious example of artisan sausage-making. They have perfectly browned casing, and the juices oozing forth from the slits sliced into the sausage. Witness now that the juices are actually molten cheese -- salty, tangy and running toward their sizzling fate on the searing-hot skillet. The sheeps-cheese studded, parsley-packed, red pepper-flecked pork sausage stands so far above any other that I confidently say it's the finest Italian sausage in America, better than any in the Italian-American stronghold of New York where I grew up.
