This weekend, Mike, Stef, Elana, and I took in a movie. It was the one about the old people who move to India. I can not remember the name of it for the life of me.
Ahhh, the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel – no wonder I can’t remember. It was actually a very nice movie. Plus, it made me move India up towards the top of my travel list. All those colors, and the music!
I liked the restaurant ambience a lot. They did a good job with the design and decor. Pie? I can take it or leave it, so I didn’t really have expectations one way or another.
They are served in coffee cups so are super cute. The crust on top is to die for, but is missing the bottom piece.
I’m kind of a fan of macaroni and cheese, so it could have just been served in a regular dish and I would have been happy. The mac and cheese pie was unique and also darling, but maybe a little under seasoned.
Both pies were very good, but the crumble on the rhubarb strawberry was delicious. I’d never had rhubarb before, but I liked it because it wasn’t as sweet as other fruit pies.
I enjoy novel restaurants, and the Republic of Pie certainly is. It fits into its hipster NoHo neighborhood quite nicely. We had a fun time.
