The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

The Currywurst Company in Long Beach has closed, following a run of two years.

The place was best known for its namesake German specialty, sausages served with curried ketchup. Here, a variety of wursts were topped with a proprietary tomato sauce sprinkled with curry powder, which was available in varying degrees of heat.  Among the other German specialties served were sauerbraten, schnitzels, Bavarian pretzels and strudel.
