Always Hungry reports that the long-dormant space at 29 Avenue B near Third Street is now home to the Sigmund Pretzel Shop, owned by two former Bouley staffers. Per Sigmund:
The Salted and Seeded Pretzels (three kinds: Caraway, Sesame and Poppy Pretzels) cost $2.50 each. Flavored pretzels (Jalapeño-Cheddar and Cinnamon Raisin) cost $3.00 each. There will also be pretzel dips: whipped butter, whole-grain mustard, cream cheese, warm three-cheese sauce, horseradish-mayo and Nutella. Pretzels come with one dip; additional dips cost 75¢ each. A half-dozen pretzels of any variety with three dips costs $16.00. A dozen pretzels with six dips costs $30.00.
The Steely Dan reference is to drive Slum Goddess batty. (Battier?)
