Chairman does pies, not cakes or puddings. Hence the wife’s visit to Dangerously Delicious, a D.C. pie joint that has made area foodie nerds hyperventilate with delight. The below pie welcomed me into my kitchen on my birthday weekend several months ago. (Editor’s Note: Yes, I’m behind. Patience is a virtue, comrade.)
Half an apple pie + half a pecan pie = one glorious Chairman for the proletariat. They were delicious and didn’t last long. I enjoyed big chunks of apple and a fantastic, flaky crust with a hint of cinnamon. Meanwhile, the pecan filling was creamy and understated (obnoxiously sweet desserts that ruin my taste buds are blasphemous).
There’s one storefront in Atlas and another in D.C.’s fake Chinatown. I’m looking to stop by sometime to try the coffee. On behalf of the people, Chairman gives Dangerously Delicious four out of five Little Red Books.
