Food Hussy Restaurant Review: O Pie O, Walnut Hills

It's been over a year that I've been wanting to try this next restaurant - I saw the "coming soon" sign when I visited Mardi Gras on Madison and knew I needed to go. But time passes and I get forgetful - but finally - I headed to... 

O Pie O! They serve sweet and savory pies in addition to wine, beer and sides. 

The menu is quite extensive on both sides - there are lots of kinds of pies from pot pies to quiches to traditional sweet pies and pretty much everything in between. It's a good variety and I had a hard time choosing.

There are also a list of daily specials - one of which was the Honey Vinegar sweet pie that I had heard so much about.

My friend Susie went for a special and got the ham, roasted pepper and cheddar pocket with gazpacho as well as a strawberry frangiepane pocket. The pocket pie and soup combo runs for $10 and the sweet pocket pie was $5. They served the pie + soup with a side of pickled vegetables. Susie said the gazpacho was very hearty and the pocket pie was tasty - with a great crust.

I went for the Greek Quiche which had gruyere, goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, pine nuts in a tender butter crust. This was served with one side and pickled veggies for $10.

This was good but not great. I would have liked it warmer and there was a lot going on but it wasn't outstanding. Frankly my mom's quiche is better - of course - she makes a mean quiche.

For the side I ordered the Carolina Slaw -  which had a sweet vinegar base w/ cabbage, red peppers, carrots, celery seed, onion and sells for $5 when not featured with a pie. 

I had to try the Honey Vinegar Pie ($5) mainly because I'd heard so much about it. It was served flaked with sea salt. Again - underwhelming. It was similar to a custard but really didn't have a lot of flavor to it. I was instantly jealous when I saw the Dark Chocolate pie the table next to us got.

Why Should You Go? Well I think it's worth a try and most people like it. I probably won't be back. My lunch and pie was $15 - before drink and tip - that's pretty steep for pie. I remember back in the day of Tom's Pot Pies how amazing that was and I was hoping for that.
