He’s improved doughnuts and conquered ice cream — now, Dominique Ansel is treading on grandma’s territory.
On Oct. 1, the Cronut king is throwing a Pie Night at his newly opened Dominique Ansel Kitchen. Dessert enthusiasts will have a chance to meet the chef and drink a glass of Champagne while tasting across unlimited bites of savory and sweet pies made especially for the event, along with a whole bar of a la mode toppings.
Here’s the menu, in case you were still on the fance:
Salted Caramel Apple Pie
Blueberry Pie with Buttermilk Oat Crumble
Flambéed Banana Cream Pie
Bourbon Pecan Pie
66% Dark Chocolate Cream Pie
Whiskey-kissed Sweet Potato Pie with Torched Marshmallow
Lemon Cream Pie with Thyme and Brown Sugar Meringue
Dark Meat Chicken and Fall Vegetable Pot Pie
Roasted Heirloom Tomato Tart
The one-hour tastings will take place in three time slots (7-8 p.m., 8-9 p.m., or 9-10 p.m.). Tickets are $35 per person and go on sale today at noon.
