Sigmund Pretzel Shop

29 Ave. B New York, NY 10009 | East Village | 646-410-0333

Location Description:

For most Americans, pretzels bring to mind doughy, over-salted snacks sold at concerts and ballgames. Russian-born pastry chef Lina Kulchinsky (Bouley, Danube) wanted to change that perception when she opened her small, German-style pretzel shop in the East Village. Her pretzels are warm and perfectly chewy, seasoned simply with things like sesame, caraway and poppy seeds. If you're looking for something a little fancier, you can always try the cheddar-coated jalapeno pretzels or the gruyere paprika pretzels. Dipping sauces are free; choose from honey mustard, beet-horseradish mayo, herb goat cheese, nutella and more. During lunch, crowds come in for the sandwiches, split pretzels filled with combinations like roast turkey and gouda, smoked salmon and dill cream cheese, and roast beef with horseradish, along with coffee from Philly-based organic, fair trade roaster La Colombe Torrefaction. The space itself is clean and small, all white walls and tin ceilings, with pretzels stacked behind glass cases.—Keith Wagstaff
