The sausage recipe didn’t start with Helmut and Henry Wanninger, but they were the ones to bring it across the Atlantic in 1965. Sons of a sausage meister, Helmut and Henry left their home in Bavaria and set up shop in St. Louis, where they began spicing, grinding, and casing sausages to the delight of the city’s southern neighborhoods, home to many German immigrants. The popularity of their encased meats continues today, though cousins Bob and Gerhard are now the master meatsmiths. These Wanninger descendants prepare more than 30 different Bavarian-style sausages, including multiple types of bratwurst, specialty sausages such as bockwurst and smoked liverwurst, and Landjager beef sticks. These specialties grace venues all over St. Louis, from Grant’s Farm to Gus’ Pretzels to the Egypt-themed alternate reality that exists on the other side of the Arch.
Bob and Gerhard also apply their expertise to other styles of encased meats, such as andouille and chorizo, and they happily process deer for hunters. In addition to manning the meat counter, the duo stocks the shelves with German goods such as Lowensenf mustards and breads from local bakeries.
Dessert is typically the concluding sweet note to a long, satisfying meal. At The In Spot Dessert Bar and Lounge, however, it’s the focal point. Rather than constantly churn out the same sweets, The In Spot's culinary team creates new desserts every night, which run the gamut from cupcakes and cheesecake to chocolate-covered strawberries. These sacchariferous delights complement the bar's cocktails, wine, and beer, as well as the kitchen's Southern-style late-night snacks such as Caribbean-style jerk shrimp. Feasts unfold in The In Spot's intimate, romantic interior, replete with black and white leather seating and comfy booths.
