If you want a really good piece of pie, get over to Four and Twenty Blackbirds in Gowanus. I know this is no secret, nor is this place new, but boy, did their pie win me over on Saturday. We were at the homebrew shop next door (Jacob made his first batch of beer this weekend; now our bathroom smells like a frat party :)), and I saw the sign for pie next door. I wasn't going to miss an opportunity for (extra) dessert. The menu changes daily, but I scooped up a slice each of the Salted Caramel Apple and the Stone Fruit Crumb pie. Both were divine, most especially the Salted Caramel Apple. They had a fig and plum pie I was dying to try, but it was only available as a whole pie. Next time.
