National Pretzel Day is on April 26th and these six NYC restaurants are ready to celebrate. By Carly Petrone.
New York, NY
Whether you’re craving something savory and salty or gooey and sweet, Sigmund’s Pretzels has got it all. Stop in for one of their hand-rolled German-style soft pretzels and dips like a hearty Gruyere Paprika with whole grain mustard, or a decadent Churro with Nutella. You can also fill up on a classic Reuben, Norwegian salmon, or prosciutto sandwich on a fresh pretzel bun. Stop in during happy hour (4 p.m. – 9 p.m.) and get a free pretzel with every drink. Now that’s a good deal!

You may already know about City Bakery’s famous Hot Chocolate Festival or their divine melted chocolate chip cookies, but did you know they’re also the home of the pretzel croissant? Yep, this pastry is salty like a pretzel but flaky like a croissant. At $4 a pop, it’s certainly a twist worth trying!
Wogies Bar & Grill
New York, NY 10014
Head over to the West Village and stop into Wogies Bar & Grill for their Philly Soft Pretzel ($7). Dunk these warm bread bites into your choice of Yuengling cheddar beer sauce or grainy mustard sauce. Not only are these pretzels made in-house, but they also make the perfect base for a sandwich. Their Grilled Chicken Sandwich ($13) with lettuce, tomato and mayo is served on a pretzel roll and pairs perfectly with one of their many beers on draft. Stop in from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. (Monday-Friday) and get $1 off any draft or bottled brew.
New York, NY 10019
If you’re in the mood for a little vino with your pretzel, then grab a seat at Ardesia. This wine bar is serving up homemade New York-style Pretzels ($9) with Dijon mustard and cheese sauce. The chunks of sea salt on top will satisfy any salt craving, while the mixture of tart mustard with the rich cheese sauce will leave you wanting more. Enjoy $2 off any glass of wine and draft beers during happy hour Monday through Friday from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.
The Ginger Man
New York, NY 10016
You might want to try all of the pretzels that are available at The Ginger Man. Choose from a traditional soft pretzel, cinnamon sugar, or Parmesan garlic, along with a variety of sauces including honey mustard, multi-grain mustard, pesto, homemade beer cheese, homemade frosting, blue cheese dressing, house sauce and hot sauce. Phew! Now that’s a lot of different ways to celebrate! They’ve got just as many beers to pair your pretzel, with so sit down and stay a while.
