Pie Bar

Why not combine two of the most enjoyable culinary experiences in life – drinks and dessert – into one? Why not indeed, as this is the concept behind Pie Bar, a relatively new Capitol Hill bar that serves not only beer and pie, but delicious “pie-tini” drink concoctions. The small, triangular space is tucked away on Olive right by the freeway, but quite welcoming with great service.

After a round of beer and a chicken fajita pie (they have quite a few of the savory variety) we progressed to dessert, starting with strawberry rhubarb pie (served a-la-mode, naturally), which I have to say is even better than my dad’s (sorry dad). It was made extra special by the topping, which crumbly and very buttery. The crust -the part I’m most picky about – was top-notch.

Dessert round two was a pie-tini of the key lime variety. It really did taste like a liquid (and alcoholic) key lim pie. It had a milky, frothy texture and was nicely tart. Of special note was the pie crust crumble rim (rather than a sugar or salt rim).

Pie Bar is a special spot that I hope will stick around for a long time. You don’t need an excuse to go try it – there’s always a reason to eat (or drink) pie.
