Chew on This: Where Do You Go for Summer Pies?

One of our favorite things about summer fruit is all the pies that come out of it.

"Pie is supposed to make you feel like a little kid," he wrote. "Leave the pie alone. We want pie. A full wedge. So simple. So good."

Where do you go for a slice of pie—a full wedge or a deconstructed version?
