Neighborhood Eats: Sigmund’s Pretzels

Pretzel bread is such a rare find. I was excited to grab a pretzel sandwich at Sigmund’s Pretzels on Avenue B between 2nd and 3rd. I ordered a tomato, mozzarella, pesto sandwich and a Sixpoint. (I wanted a pumpkin ale but the cashier told me that their board was outdated and that beer had been out for a while. Wah wahh.)

I enjoyed the sandwich and beer over The Bowery: A History of Grit, Graft and Grandeur. (Quick, interesting read. Definitely recommend it.) The shop itself was pretty quiet and although the seating is not the most comfortable, it’s a great setup for an afternoon hang.

Overall the sandwich was good, but not amazing. The pesto was a little too nutty for me and the bread could have been saltier but I’ll definitely be back to try some of the other pretzel goodness on the menu.

On my list to try: regular salted, truffle cheddar and feta olive bagels; herb goat cheese, nutella, beat-horseradish dips; hot dog on a pretzel bun.

 

Where else can I find some solid pretzel bread in the city?
