Best Chocolate Pie??
I am looking for a place to buy a chocolate pie for my birthday. I asked my husband for a chocolate silk pie, and neither of us has any clue where to find one.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
Here's a good tip. I'm kind of tight with the Maire D at Brennans but I can't find his card. I think his first name is Jorge. He's a short kind of heavy set nice guy. They will make anything you want to take out. I have picked up gumbo for years to take home. Give them a call and see if you can get one of their pies. Good luck.
CREOLE CHOCOLATE SUICIDE CAKE
Try Flour Power in Chalmette: 2101 Paris Rd, (504) 276-9095
And perhaps Maurice's Bakery will do it by special request. I'd also call Chez Pierre in Kenner and ask nicely for a chocolate silk pie: I really like CP's chocolate cream pie, as the filling has good choco flavor (as opposed to just being brown). 2211 Veterans Memorl Blvd in Kenner, (504) 467-3176
Also try the Cake Cafe in the Marigny, 2440 Chartres St, 943-0010. Not sure if pies are standard there, but again, by special request, a pie might be possible.
Eons ago, a pastry/coffee shop was in the storefront on Magazine where Nirvana is now located; that's probably the last place in town I saw chocolate silk pie for sale in NOLA. Funny how some desserts just don't seem to catch on, while others (cupcakes, for example) ride waves of popularity into near ubiquity.
