Does Dangerously Delicious Pies (a Baltimore import) read my blog? Absolutely not. Am I taking full credit for their existence on H Street? 110%.
Look, I know that I have like 7 readers (thanks friends!) but doesn’t it seem a bit of a coincidence that only a month ago I make an appeal to hipster chefs of the world to abandon cupcakes in favor of other dessert snacks? I then outlined why a pie shop specifically would suit their hipster sensibilities even suggesting some punned pie names to get them started, such as President Pie-den and Pievel goes West (see my oracle of a blog entry HERE).
And now lo! A pie shop appears!!!! And one that serves sweet and savory pies (including quiche) no less. I know some of you probably think meat pies are gross. That some of you is wrong. I spent an undisclosed amount of time in New Zealand where meat pies were a staple for SPY, especially after a few beers. Dangerously Delicious Pies makes all pies from fresh ingredients, rolls all crusts by hand and takes pie orders for the holidays. Perfection. Some pics:
In the words of Liz Lemon, I want to go there.
