Our apologies for the delay in sharing our posts! I’m sure you’ll love reading this one!
Last week, LaurenAsh picked out a new place for date night. We usually spend 10 minutes trying to figure out what we have a taste for or what is closest to where we are at that time. This particular night, she was more than excited to have pre-planned the night. Little did she know, so was I!
We hoped on the train at Grand Central and headed to Union Square (14th st). This is actually one of favorite areas in the city because it has a lot of restaurants that offer gluten-free items. Once we arrived to our location, my eyes lit up and my taste buds salivated with joy. Pizzaaaaaaaa!!!!!
I have been craving pizza for a few weeks now. It’s somewhat easy to find places that offer gluten-free pizza crust, but you’ll pay twice as much for it.
Pie by the Pound not only offered gluten-free pizza crust but also vegan options as well, not to mention all at an affordable cost.
We were simply in heaven! Within minutes we would be enjoying a hot and delicious mushroom and eggplant pizza.
Did I mention Pie by the Pound also offers an assortment of gluten-free beers?! How could I forget?! That was the perfect side item to our lovely pizza.
Not only was the pizza delicious and the brews stepped it up a notch. The fact that the environment was so welcoming and friendly should have the competition a little worried.
The staff was conversational and laid back. There was a game board table that kept guests entertained and in our case buy more beers.
Jeff, Pie by the Pound’s manager made us feel like we were having a pizza party at his house, which made the experience extremely unique. He even made sure that we fully educated in our choice of living a gluten-free lifestyle.
After we enjoyed our meal, we ordered another round and scouted the game board table. We decided on picking a game that we haven’t played before.
Bananagrams caught our attention, it seemed to be a spin on Scrabble without the board. We managed to play two rounds before the day caught up with us and we started to yawn.
We will definitely be heading back to Pie by the Pound this weekend!
Pie by the Pound… YOU’VE JUST BEEN BUDDED!!! 🙂
