Dangerously Delicious Pies (1339 H St) plans to expand their popular H Street pie shop to the building's second floor in the coming months. Plans call for a back patio off the new second level. The expansion to the second level will provide additional room for the shop to host small bands for live music to entertain their patrons. Dangerously Delicious Pies founder Rodney Henry is a well-regarded musician and DDP-DC has hosted small music acts at events in the past, but the shop's current configuration with a small first level provides little room for performances.
They will also be seeking a liquor license to allow them to serve beer and other beverages besides water, milk or juice alongside their quiches and sweet and savory pies. We're not sure what goes well with strawberry rhubarb, but the SMOG goes well with beer or a hearty red wine and their quiche pair nicely with your choice of mimosas and bloody marys.
We tend to buy our pies whole to go as they're one of our favorite things to serve when entertaining. Their quiche makes for an easy brunch, savory pies are a fun alternative to cheese/cracker and veggies/dip for a cocktail party, and their sweet pies are a nice way to end any dinner (the Key [Bridge] Lime with graham cracker crust is a particularly good rendition and a nice cool treat in these hot summer months).
Don't forget that in addition to staying open late, Dangerously Delicious opens daily for lunch starting at 11 am on weekdays, and opens at 9 am on weekends.
