Yesterday we noted that the pretzel-centric bar-restaurant had not been open lately at 29 Avenue B between Second Street and Third Street. The folks at Sigmund's shared a message on their social media accounts last night noting the closure.
The Urbanspace Vanderbilt location lives on in Midtown. And as noted, the popular pretzels are on the menu of several restaurants in the city and sold via carts at various locations and events.
As for Avenue B, perhaps this concept was too adult for the block... they'd need 186 giant TVs and kegs of free brunch mimosas to help put a dent in the nearby crowds.
