Summary: With the original pie shop up in Baltimore, Rodney Henry opened his second Dangerously Delicious Pies here in DC earlier this year. His vision is to offer some of the best pie, sweet or savory, in the country, while enjoying some good tunes and a cup of coffee. Closest Metro is Union Station.


We decided to ride our bikes up to H Street and grab some pie to take back home for dessert. The shop is fairly small, with painted red walls and black and white rock and roll pictures. There is a small "bar" with a glass shelf that displays the daily pie offerings. Priced at about $30 a pie or $7 a slice, I was expecting large size pieces, but they were pretty average. The focus is more on the fresh fillings than the crust - which some may not like and insist that a good pie is the balance between the filling and the crust. The crust was very thin and dry in my opinion. The fillings were fresh yet not really that sweet. Also on the menu were savory pies - think meat fillings - and quiches. All in all, the pie shop is a different twist to the H St/Atlas District area and another trendy alternative to the cupcakes we see in DC. But the price tag will not call me back regularly - I'd rather get the homemade pies from Eastern Market (about $14 each).
