pie-roundup
There’s absolutely nothing humble about our love for a sweet slice of pie! Whether it’s apple, pecan, rhubarb (love that word), cherry, pumpkin (only in November), key lime… pie is the comfort food to dig into with two forks, a friend, and your shoes kicked under the table. So, we put in the hours (‘twas a torturous task! Not.) and kissed the calories hello at three of our favorite L.A. pie post-ups for a new old fashioned take on the timeless dessert. Here’s the yummy scoop on where to go, who to know, and what to order!
