Now this is the best way to end the work week. Stop in The Dutch and grab a seat at the bar. No need for a full meal—this Banana Cream Pie ($10) is decadent enough. A crumbly, well-spiced graham cracker crust serves as the base, and it's topped with fresh banana slices folded into thick, remarkably creamy pudding. All the housemade pies at The Dutch range from good to excellent, and this is a winner. And that's even before you factor in the tidy orange segments on a bed of chocolate ganache and perfectly round scoop of sour orange sherbert.
