Strange Snacks of the World--Pretzel Croissant
The pretzel croissant at Maury Rubin's City Bakery is like a crazy Luther Burbank cross, featuring a salty, tough, sesame-seeded outer surface like a pretzel, and a moist, oily interior like a croissant. Nothing better for breakfast if you dig the pastry's hybrid pleasures, but don't you dare spread it with peanut butter! 3 West 18th Street, 212-366-1414
