Celebrate National Pie Day!
January 23rd is National Pie Day! From classic apple pie to signature specialties, Chicago is home to various restaurants serving the traditional dessert. Grab a slice from any of these Chicago locations.
Start with dinner before dessert at Pie-eyed Pizzeria.

The pizzeria features pizza by the slice, deep dish, calzones, and fried shrimp baskets. Only a 10 minute ride on the 56 bus from Catalyst Apartments.
A Chicago favorite and the mother of all pie shops, stop by Hoosier Mama Pie Company. Selling slices and whole pies, Hoosier Mama makes their pies by hand with ingredients from local farms. Flavors include specialties such as passionfruit meringue, grapenut custard, and earl grey custard, while also including favorites like apple and chocolate cream. Find them at a local market near you, or the Pie Shop is only a 7 minute drive from Catalyst Apartments, or a 10 minute drive from 400 N. LaSalle.
Relax after dinner with coffee and a slice of pie at Beatrix. Try their infamous Oh My! Caramel pie paired with a latte or a glass of wine. Only a 2 minute walk on Clark from AMLI River North or a 4 minute walk down Grand Avenue from Grand Plaza.
Pie pairs well with burgers at Grange Hall Burger Ball! Known for their grass-fed, natural patties, Grange Hall is also known for their heir monthly pie and ice cream flavors.
