Best New Pies

Liberty Pie

The ratio of the circumference to the diameter of these pies is Pi. No argument here. But there is argument all over town about Austin's best pizza Liberty Pies is so much more than pizza, that we didn't want to just focus on that. Owner Louis Lambert (whose name got around quite a bit during his tenure with Word of Mouth caterers) acquired his pie experience, not by luck, but by Puck - as in Wolfgang. Lambert tossed with the San Francisco sheik of pizza-chic, so the gourmet twist in the small South Congress take-out is a given. In addition to a scrumptious pizza menu, the items in their gourmet case change daily. On any day you might find roasted vegetables or cous-cous salad, herb-crusted beef tenderloin or meatloaf, and all manner of cobbler, pie, crumb-tops, and lattice tops. Additionally, they offer a freezer full of Binasco's amazing gelato and sorbetto. Come around for a slice and learn that the essence of Pi(e) is so much more than 3.14159.
