NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Friday is National Pretzel Day, and there’s no shortage of venues celebrating in New York City.
At the Union Square Green market, the Martin’s Pretzels outpost features Pennsylvania Dutch–style pretzels. The artisanal treats come packed in several sizes, including a three-pound, bright red gift bucket ($22.99). You can get traditional or whole wheat, with salt or without, light or dark.
Sigmund’s (29 Avenue B) has salted, seeded, and flavored pretzels with all kinds of dips. They also have a unique pretzel sandwich. Inside that is mozzarella, tomato and pesto or smoked salmon and cream cheese.
The Red Head on East 13th St serves up soft pretzels with cheese for dipping.
Landbrot, a German bakery in the West Village is dishing up hot brezeln (137 7th Ave South).
At Varsano’s on West 4th pick up a chocolate or caramel-dipped pretzel (172 W. 4th Street).
And there’s always the staple buttery pretzel at Auntie Anne’s. They have jalapeno, cinnamon sugar, garlic, raisin, and pepperoni pretzels, nuggets and sticks. You’ll find these all over in your local mall or visit the one at Rockefeller Center.
