A really good slice of pie...
I was having lunch at the Westway Diner the other day on 9th Avenue between 43rd and 44th Streets in Manhattan. I'd walked by there many times on my way to auditions, but had never tried it. I ended up ordering a turkey club sandwich with fries. It was okay, but typical average NYC diner fare. There are a few good diners in NYC, but too many average ones that aren't anything special. However, the dessert case looked really good and I ordered a slice of chocolate cream pie for dessert and was totally wowed by it.
A good inch and a half of cream on top, chocolate filling that tasted like chocolate and a nice flaky crust. I asked the waiter and he said he believed that the pies were all made in house. In NYC, I don't know how much that statement is worth as most staff don't get very chatty or concern themselves with that kind of rapport, but it really was a damn fine slice of pie.
Buffetbuster, see what your reports have done to me? Now I'm on the prowl for pie when I'm out!! Thanks!! hehe
