Recently, Tori and I went to a new downtown restaurant called Pie Bird.
cute, isn't it?
You can guess what they have on their menu ... pie!
However ... it's almost directly across from the Krispy Kreme and I can't promise that if the hot now sign was on we wouldn't have turned in there for dessert. Tori and I get really excited when the hot now sign is on.
these were some of their daily special dessert pies. there were even more choices than this!
that's a lot of pies!
Anyways, it's on a cute little street surrounded by super cute downtown houses with giant front porches that I want to swing on.
The interior was mostly exposed brick (which I love) and a full bar (which I would have also loved had it not been my lunch break) and paintings on the walls that were rather odd - mostly of skulls and things. They reminded us of The Nightmare Before Christmas more than they did of pie.
We both ordered a savory "hand pie" and salad for lunch and then got dessert pie to go. I got Strawberry Lemonade which was basically lemon pie topped with meringue and strawberries. Honestly it inspired me to make more pies. Sometimes pies get overlooked because of things like cakes and cupcakes but pies are making a comeback in my kitchen this summer. And peanut butter pie is at the top of the list.
As for Pie Bird ... would I eat there again? Yea probably, but I would either get the meal or dessert, not both. $5.50 for 1 slice of pie is a bit much knowing I can cook up a whole pie at home.
How was your Memorial Day? Did you eat any pie?
