I was yearning for a nice Lemon Meringue pie yesterday so I went to my go to spot, Modern Snack Bar, but they were closed on Mondays.

I hit Briermere and found what looked like a nice Lemon Meringue pie for $25.00. Sticker shock since the same pie is $4.00 less at Modern Snack Bar.

Got the pie home and it was a big disappointment. Meringue was thick and gloppy when it should have been airy and light.

The lemon was more like pudding and had little lemony taste.

Junior's in Brooklyn is my favorite for Lemon Meringue pie with Modern Snack Bar a close second.

Briermere has a reputation for being most wonderful for their fruit pies which I find good but not great.

I often wonder if they actually make their own pies or just bring them in and bake on premises.

For fruit pies on the North Fork I prefer:
- Schmitt's Family Farm
- Windy Acres
- Modern Snack Bar

All three of these places make their own pies.
