There was a blueberry pie on the menu at Gramercy Tavern. But alas! That was just for a few days. It is gone now. Not to worry though, it's been replaced with an equally fine Strawberry Pie ($9). There are two components: a bright round of fresh mint ice cream and this single crust pie complete with a mini-mountain of summer strawberries. The pie crust is made from crushed graham crackers and butter; the strawberries are quartered and tossed with a housemade strawberry jam. Cheers to simple perfection.
