Back in February we told you that the city would finally get its piece of the proverbial pie with the arrival of Holly Ricciardi’s Magpie Artisan Pie Bakery & Boutique on the South Street. Though originally slated for June, it’s looking now like the sweet and savory pie hole will be ready to start slinging its wares in late July, according to rep for the operation. Some of the pies on order when the opening finally comes include such summery inspired sweets as orange blossom raspberry peach, blueberry cardamom with polenta streusel, and what looks like a pretty sick shoofly pie. The savory side of the menu looks like its going to be equally appetizing, with things like cheddar corn tomato and basil, chicken tarragon with white wine sauce, and ham leek with grainy mustard.
