Sometimes Mr. Mari and I wonder if we were Austrian or German in a previous life. We both love schnitzel, beer, wurst and don't forget about all those tasty Viennese pastries - um, hello: Sachertorte, apple streudel, and Linzer torte.
Sigmund Pretzel Shop makes really delicious chewy, tender, yeasty German-style pretzels with a few modern flavor variations (she did work at Jean-Georges and Bouley). We sampled the truffle cheddar, hot dog on a pretzel bun and a couple of Spaten beers. Happy belly? Ja, sehr zufrieden.
