Best pumpkin pie - westside???

My husband is in love with pumpkin pie. . .And, as it's that time of year, I was wondering if anyone has any local favorites for pumpkin pie on the westside? I'd love to pick up a pie (or 2) as a treat. Thanks in advance, chowhounds!

  1. I love the pumpkin pie at Urth Cafe.

    1. Josie Restaurant usually sells pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving, and they are, hands down, the best I've ever had anywhere. Expensive, but worth it, imo.

        I just called. $30 for a nine-incher, which puts them smaller and (I think) cheaper than the Filling Station pie. Order Turkey week Tues for Weds. pickup. I think I'll try them this year.

      2. I think the best restaurant pumpkin pie I've ever had was from Campanile. I got an e-mail that they are seeking them for T-day -- a single pie serves ten and costs $34 -- which ain't cheap but it's worth every penny. (The e-mail didn't say if they're sold through the restaurant or through the La Brea Bakery store.)

          That's interesting. How long ago did you sample their pie? (Wondering if Ms. Silverton's disassociation with Campanile might be an issue.)

            Last Thanksgiving.

            Actually, it sounds like it might not be that expensive compared to Josie or Filling Station.

              That Fillling Station pie is huge in all dimensions much bigger than a nine inch. However "best ever" goes along way as far as I'm concerned, so I'll give it a try. Plus I don't have to drive all that way.

        2. Don't forget Costco. Great pumpkin pie. Huge! And you can't beat the price.

            But don't forget to check out the ingredients in that Costco pie either. Just might turn your stomach as it did mine the other day.

            Thirty dollars for a pie?! *I'll* bake you one for that! I just put up 7 cups of biodynamic organic pumpkin. And ate a whole pie nearly by myself yesterday!! (gotta cut that out, but after reading the Costco ingredient list....)

              "Turn my stomach"? Why?
              I'll pay $30 for a once a year shot at a fantastic pie. We'll see if it rises to the occasion (or seizes on that day).

          2. Thanks for all the great responses. . . will hopefully get to try many of the suggestions. They all sound so great! mmmmmmmmm.
