Pecan pie

Adam Stephanides | Feb 1, 2000 09:24 AM

I love pecan pie, but I've had very little of it since I moved to New York, since neither the kinds of restaurants I usually go to nor my favorite bakeries serve it. What's the best pecan pie in NYC? Searching this site turned up only a recommendation for the Little Pie Company, which I'll try, though I haven't been crazy about them in the past (sacrilege, I know).

The best I've had in NYC so far was at Sparks steak house, but since I'm not a fan of either steak in general or the steak I had there in particular, I probably won't be back. I bought one from Balducci's for Thanksgiving and it was good, but not memorable. Also, I'm looking more for a slice than a whole pie, since I live alone (though if the pie were really spectacular, I'd make an exception). Incidentally, I like my filling sweet.
