Their list of pies is unique and confusing, where I had to ask what things meant. But just so you know, it doesn’t matter if you know what you’re getting, because they’re all great. The main automatic winner in pie making is the pie crust. You make a good pie crust and Four & Twenty Blackbirds makes a damn good pie crust. It’s flaky and soft and crunchy and tastes like butter melting in your mouth.
I understand that fresh ingredients and handmade make things more expensive, but $4.75 a slice is pushing it. I went in hoping to have 2 slices but could only afford 1. It’s so sad when you like it so much, then it’s gone in just a few minutes. So sad. I had the black bottom lemon pie. It’s a creamy lemon pie with chocolate on the bottom between the lemon and the crust. YUM. I’ve also had the Salted Caramel Apple which is just as dangerous (in a good way). Other pies on the seasonal menu include Cranberry Sage, Black bottom Oat and Salted Honey, there was another one but it sold out before I could get to it! Get there early. The line was out the door, and the tables were packed! It’s worth it, even for just one expensive slice of heaven.
