The newest concept from Rosenberg’s Bagels & Delicatessen owner Josh Pollack will make its debut this Sunday, June 5 at the Source’s Slow Food Farmers Market. Housed in a mobile, electric tuk tuk, City Pretzel brings another taste of the east coast to Denver with soft pretzels with a variety of mustards and cheese sauces, as well as kosher beef links from Old World Provisions in New York. “I’m excited to bring more East Coast delights to Denver,” said Pollack. “Freshness is key and by baking our pretzels and dogs daily, we’ll be upping the pretzel game for everyone in town.”

After its inaugural service at the Source, you can track City Pretzel’s whereabouts on Twitter.

As Avanti Food & Beverage approaches its one year anniversary, we have already seen one shuffle with the departure of Farmer Girl and addition of Bamboo Sushi. In July, Kevin Morrison’s Poco Torteria will leave the restaurant incubator to make room for the Regional from Kevin Grossi.

Grossi, a former executive chef of Lola, brings a taste of American favorites including New England clam chowder, raw and charbroiled oysters, cobb salad, and more. Additionally, the Regional will feature seasonal dishes with ingredients sourced from Colorado farms when possible. In preparation for the new endeavor, Grossi will embark on a month-long roadtrip across the country. “The purpose is to gather new recipe and product ideas and show our guests that soul and comfort live in more places than the South,” said Grossi.

The Regional will open on July 19.
