I've seen Pie Face locations around the city, but I never bothered to go in until my former roommate hit it up first! She was here recently arranging her wedding (August!! eeeee!) and popped into the location on 53rd street.
For Americans, I don't think the phrase "meat pie" is super appetizing at first. That itself probably put me off the place for a while, even though I have eaten more than my fair share of meat pies (and 'meat' pies) in visits through Europe, Russia, & South America (and let's be real: New York, too!)
Each pie's mouth is different to reflect the filling. The pulled pork has a "Q" for the mouth, ie BBQ. This was hands-down our favorite in the savory samplings. Tender, seasoned, and an excellent filling-to-crust ratio!
I went back the next day to get some sweet pies and came back with this gorgeous trio: L-R, pear ricotta, lemon, and apple pie.
|So much lemon!!|
The sweet pie winner for me was the pear-ricotta pie. Not too sweet, the ricotta was light and fluffy and the pears were super tender. I'll be back this week for a pulled pork & a pear ricotta pie, and no, I won't be sharing!
