Located in Dallas’s hip Bishop Arts District, in a charming old house with a large front porch and teal shutters, Emporium Pies feels a bit like coming home. Your first instinct will be to press your face against the glass like a five-year-old, perusing the fluffy meringues and the flaky, buttery crusts. But then you gain your composure, and the real decision is at hand: do you choose Father Christmas, a peppermint cream pie with a chocolate cookie crust, or the Drunken Nut, a bourbon pecan pie with a shortbread crust? Or perhaps Blue Steel, a blueberry-filled butter crust? All treats are handmade on site and flavors change seasonally, so check the website for the what's on the menu—or simply stop in regularly to keep up to date.
