Dangerously Delicious Pies coming to Chinatown

The Downtown BID reports that Dangerously Delicious Pies signed a lease at 901 7th Street NW in Chinatown. Founded in Baltimore, their signature sweet and savory pies have been available in DC since 2010 when the pieman opened a shop on H Street NE and launched a food truck often found at Metro Center.

    Great news! I’m exciting to have a local, small business coming in versus another touristy chain. Good luck, pie people!

    Just what we need, more incredibly overpriced food to cater to the 1%. They’re pretty tasty, but 35 dollars for a pie? Are you kidding me? Seven dollars for a slice?!? Even more ridiculous than cupcakes, Starbucks, and bars selling Miller Lite for $5 a draft.

    If you get one of the dense meat filled savory pies, like the Pork BBQ, it can be worth the money. Think about it this way… the typical food truck meal in DC is $8 and a hearty savory pie from Dangerously Delicious definitely supplies enough food for much more than 4 meals.

    1) if you can feed 4 from the one savory pie we tried (Sausage, mushroom, onion, cheese AKA Smog), I think you're outside the norm. With a homemade side salad, it fed 2 adults and one eight year old.

    2) With food trucks, you're paying a premium for single serving sizes — similar to the premium Dangerously Delicious is charging on a $7.50 slice. Compare the quantity of food in 2 District of PI truck pizzas (i.e. larger than a single serving) for $12 each to a $35 Dangerous and I think the pizza is easily its equal.

    But let's not pretend most food truck food isn't wildly overpriced and far beyond the range of what many people can comfortably afford for lunch. In both cases, you're paying restaurant type prices for a takeout experience.

    I’d like to see more lower priced options in the area too, but a $10 lunch is surely not 1% territory.

    Yes, there’s not enough lower-priced options in this area, there’s only: McDonald’s, Subway, Capital Q, California Tortilla, Chipotle, Taylor, Nando’s, Potbelly, Chopt, Vapiano, Corner Bakery, Quiznos, Five Guys, and Eat First. (If you go a bit farther out, you only have Merzi, Luke’s, Meatballs, Amorini, Qdoba, Le Pain Quotidien, Pret a Manger, Cosi, Au Bon Pain, and Henry’s Soul Food.)

    I’m super excited to have Dangerously Delicious in the neighborhood–yes, their pies can be pricey but, like puppies and videos of sneezing panda cubs, the world needs more pie.

    I’m so glad to see a local buisness expand with such great success. They are definately NOT of the 1% – but a local group that made good.

    AND….I LOVE PIE

    @Washingtonydc

    Love your post! My thoughts exactly! I guess all the lower-priced establishments should stop using their cloaking devices so much, so we can actually see them!

    ..oh, and MORE pie, please! Bring IT! :)

    it's their fault says

    This 1% stuff is pretty funny. Wasn’t it the 1% that said “let them eat cake?” Now it is the 1% eating pie.
