Pie and fresh-baked biscuits and biscuit sandwiches.
I've now discovered a once-a-week pie. If I'm not careful, it could turn into a twice-a-week-or-more pie. And I don't have to lift a finger for it—I only have to walk a few blocks and hand over $5 for a supernaturally good slice of Bang Bang Pie Shop’s chocolate pie. Sure, the sea-salt-and-chocolate thing has been done, but not done as simply, lovingly, and successfully as this. The adorable little shop's chocolate pie is so good it makes the really, really good blueberry pie seem not as amazing as it is. Bang Bang's strawberry-rhubarb and its summer pie, the latter with a layer of frozen, sage-flecked cream and raspberries, aren't too shabby, either. Arguably even better, you could have them for breakfast: Bang Bang opens early and, in addition to pie, serves coffee and biscuits that you should slather with both the black-pepper butter and the preserved strawberries if you know what's good for you.
