Pie Flight at Four & Twenty Blackbirds

There honestly isn’t much I love more in this world than a piece of really great pie. Except for maybe three pieces of really great pie!

Brooklyn’s Four & Twenty Blackbirds bakery is offering pie flights this week, through Friday: three pieces of homemade pie for $10.

“Sing a song of sixpence a pocket full of rye / Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie...”

And not just your generic apple pie, either. Sisters Melissa and Emily Elsen learned the art of pie-making from their grandmother, and have opened Four & Twenty Blackbirds with a repertoire of close to three dozen varieties of pie! These butter-crust dessert pies are made using seasonal ingredients, so make sure you get there before your favorites are gone. Selections vary daily and are available mostly by the slice (whole pies can be ordered ahead), but with summery choices like peach berry, lavender blueberry, and blood orange & rhubarb, it’s hard to go wrong! Savory pies and tarts will be added to the lineup soon, making Four & Twenty Blackbirds a one-stop shop for all your flaky, buttery pie needs.

*Note: Cash Only, closed Mondays; open T-F: 8-7, Sat: 9-7, Sun: 10-6

  1. On this cold and rainy afternoon, some warm pie and a hot coffee - and a game of Scrabble - would be ideal. EXCELLENT POST!
