A new bakery specializing in soft pretzels is opening in the former printing press behind Pizza Delicious next month, Todd Price reports. A Soft Awesome Pretzel (ASAP) is the brainchild of 'pretzel belt' (Pennsylvania) native Thomas Rakocy and pretzel whisperer/Nola native Wayne J. Weidig. Apparently they have the equipment to crank out 400 Bavarian-style pretzels every six minutes.
The bakery will offer indoor and outdoor seating and a late-night walk-up window. The pretzels will be available with a slew of dipping options, and more items—pretzel hot dogs, fresh bread— will likely make an appearance after the opening. The pretzels may also soon be available at some local bars.
617 B Piety Street
Projected Opening: April
