Best German Restaurant with Swabian-Style Pretzels

Pretzel baker Drew Rath got his start making his German Swabian soft pretzels (skinnier legs than Bavarian with a slit in the belly) out of Newport’s Incubator Kitchen Collective. Known as Tuba Baking Co., he wholesaled his pretzels and dips to places like MadTree, Urban Stead Cheese and Crafts & Vines. But in September 2019, he opened a brick-and-mortar Tuba Baking Co. on Pike Street in Covington. Because the wholesaling takes up most of Rath’s time, the storefront is only open on Saturdays. However, it’s worth the exclusivity, as the eatery serves those pretzels but also an assortment of dips (beer cheese, housemade mustards), spätzle, zwiebelsuppe (onion soup), flammkuchen (flatbread) and imported draft German beers that you can’t find anywhere else in town.
