Pi Day is March 14! Here’s Where To Get Pie on the Upper West Side

Pi Day on March 14 might celebrate the mathematical constant π, but there’s a much tastier way to enjoy the holiday here on the Upper West Side than doing any math problems – with a delicious, homemade pie, whether it’s blueberry, apple or pumpkin.

Within only minutes of our Sagamore apartments are tons of locally-owned bakeries which are the experts when it comes to a perfect pie. Place your order now and you won’t even need to turn on your Sagamore oven!

Orwashers Bakery, located at 440 Amsterdam Ave, New York which is an eight minute walk from your Sagamore apartment, is an established artisanal bakeshop crafting breads, pies, pastries, cookies and sandwiches in a cozy space.

Orwashers is a New York City institution which was founded in 1916 by a Hungarian immigrant family and began as a small storefront. It was borne out of a desire to serve local immigrant community members and focused on the high-quality rye, black and grain breads that reflected the traditions of their homeland.

Silver Moon Bakery, located at 2740 Broadway, New York which is four minutes from your Sagamore apartment, is a neighborhood bakery offering artisan breads, French pastries, pies, cakes and tarts, plus sidewalk seating during warm weather.

Owner Judith Norell started baking at home as a child with her mother and then continued to invent delicious pieces of bread and muffins as a hobby in the rare free moments in her career as a musician. She turned to full-time baking in the late 1990s and began Silver Moon Bakery in November 2000 with co-owner Georgia Stamoulis. It was the first artisan bakery to open on the Upper West Side in many years.

Their pizzas are baked hot and fast in a brick oven to achieve a not-too-thick, not-to-thin chewy, smoky crust, made from a recipe that’s been handed down through five generations of pizza makers. They also offer a wide selection of pizzas, marked by delicate and complex ingredients.

UNO Pizzeria & Grill, located at 432 Columbus Ave, New York which is a 10 minute walk from your Sagamore apartment, is a family-friendly chain serving Chicago-style pizza along with pasta, steaks and burgers.

UNO still draws its identity and inspiration from the artisan heritage of the original pizzeria Uno in Chicago, IL. Each restaurant still makes their deep dish pizza dough fresh every morning, and their Chicago Thin Crust Pizza is jam-packed with bold flavors.
