Sugar Rush: Pearl's Blueberry Crumble Pie

Sugar Rush

Your daily dose of something sweet.


Certain desserts bear that wholesome charm, the capacity to make you so happy, giddy in a single moment. A slice (or two) of the Blueberry Crumble Pie at Pearl Oyster Bar does just that for me. Each wedge is on the thin end, and on the pricey side, at $8 a piece. But it's a pie worth seeking out for the filling alone—positively bubbling with whole taut berries, fresh and remarkably sweet during these warmer months. The crust is all you would expect from a fine pie, perhaps a bit more, with its perfect folds. And don't forget the crumble! Buttery and golden, with a crunchy wealth of brown sugar. And if that doesn't make you smile, I don't know what will.
