Summer days are coming to an end, but there are already 11 reasons to get excited for fall.
Dominique Ansel Kitchen is bringing back its sold-out Pie Night, and it’s not just for one day only this time. The bakery is also expanding its pie selection to 11, with as many savory and sweet slices as you can eat in an hour, helped by glasses of bubbly. We couldn’t manage to take them up on the tableside service of housemade ice creams last year, but that’s an option, too.
They’ll even send you out the door with treats: a cup of warm spiced apple cider and a new autumn dessert. Will it be the next Cronut? You can be the first to know.
Pie Night will be held on six nights: Wednesdays, Sept. 14, 21 and 28, and Thursdays Sept. 15, 22 and 29, with three seatings each night (7-8 p.m., 8-9 p.m. and 9-10 p.m.) Tickets are $45 and go on sale Wednesday, Aug. 24 at noon.
Here are the details on all 11 pies:
Key Lime Pie (coconut milk whipped meringue, buttered Speculoos crust)
Silk Chocolate Ombré Pie (layered with 66% dark chocolate ganache, dark and milk chocolate mousses, mascarpone whipped cream)
Salted Caramel Apple Pie
