Trend-O-Meter Says: Haute Pretzels In, Sliders Out (5/14/09)

In: Homemade Soft Pretzels. Spotted at NYC’s Death & Co (pretzel nuggets, pictured) with whole grain and honey mustard; San Francisco’s Monk’s Kettle with house-made cheddar ale sauce; Boston’s Lower Depths Tap Room with sea salt and spicy ale mustard; or you can make your own.

Finally on the Way Out: Sliders. Now starring in a Billy Mays infomercial.
