Winter may theoretically be coming to a close but it isn’t spring just yet, and we still have a couple more days of the biting wind. We think the best way to savor these last few days of chilliness is with a warm pie— sweet or savory (or both!). Check out these five locations for outstanding pie, and get ready to treat yourself on the upcoming Pi Day!
Four & Twenty Blackbirds has been serving up dessert pies, every day of the week, since 2010. Raised in rural South Dakota, two sisters with an eclectic range of interests settled down in Gowanus, Brooklyn to make pies with local and organic ingredients. They obtain milk and fruit from upstate New York, from Battenkill Valley Creamery and Wilklow Orchards, respectively. The local ingredients are not just for convenience; the pies at Four & Twenty Blackbirds are evidently fresh, raw, and natural— which makes for an undeniably delicious product. In their pursuit of local ingredients, the pie menu changes frequently depending on what fruits are in season. You can purchase a slice for about $5.00, or you can snag a whole pie from this counter service cafe; they also supply pies for weddings!
