Where is L.A.'s best Key Lime Pie?

I've got a craving! Preferably somewhere close to West Hollywood, but if it's worth venturing farther from home, I want to know about it as well.

    The Ivy. I think the whole pie is $45 or so.

      It's been a long time, but I recall the Ivy's version as being very good. Don't know if it's outsourced or not.

      CLEMINTINE has a very good Key Lime pie. I haven't done enough research to say it is the best I have had in LA, but I referred a fellow key lime fan to this pie and he was pretty happy. Call ahead to be sure that they have it.

        I second Clementine - by the slice, pie for two (IMHO for one at least for me), and a whole pie are usually available...

        The Nook one was good, but the best I had was at King's Fish House in Long Beach. Awesome!

          You can get an awesome one at Mastro's, or a less dependable but still crave-satisfying one at CPK.

            The yuzu meringue tart with fruit and mago sorbet at Mako in Beverly Hills

                I have a good buddy who's from Florida and is seriously into food; he swears by Susuina's version: http://www.susinabakery.com/ .

                  Morton's has a pretty serious Key Lime Pie.

                  The only key lime pie that I've had was from Houstons (Santa Monica) and Nichols (Marina del Rey). Both were excellent.
