New Pie Face Opening on 7th and 36th
Good news, everyone! There’s one less generic breakfast and sandwich chain place on the tourist-soaked hell that is 7th Ave! Pie Face, who previously dropped in out of the land of Steve Irwin, kookaburras, and flat white coffees, has taken over the space of a former Guy and Gallard on 7th just short of 36th. Has the tourist trade convinced the Pie Face chain to bring forth Australian goodness to the point that we can now find Vegemite sandwiches (begging the question of why the hell you’d ever want to eat one)?
Having spent a semester in Australia, I’m actually excited that we can now get the guilty pleasure of Australian street food in the form of a Thai chicken meat pie. No details as to opening date yet, and the company’s website (warning: turn down your speakers unless you really like stupid comical chewing sounds – no, really) only lists the one store on 53rd and Broadway for now. I’m willing to give them time and a shot at some fair dinkum meat pies so long as the sausage rolls become available here, too.
