Pies and Tarts: A Second Helping of Westword Food & Drink, November 30-December 4
A big pumpkin tart at Small Wonder.
The Humble Pie Store is working on opening its new location on East Colfax Avenue next door to Cerebral Brewing (which just began selling brews in November), and while things aren't quite ready yet, you can still get a taste of the baked goods before opening day. Head over to Cerebral tonight after 5:30 p.m. for some sweet and savory pastries, including Humble's new "meat heads" — meatballs wrapped in pie dough. If you already have plans tonight, the pop-up pie shop will be back at the brewery at the same time tomorrow.
Also humble could be the name of the eatery that popped up in place of the Coral Room earlier this year in West Highland. Small Wonder Food & Wine caught restaurant critic Gretchen Kurtz's attention for its attention to the little things — like a pillowy parsnip puree, a stuffed delicata squash and a savory pumpkin tart.
And in his continuing quest for great cultural cuisine, this week Mark Antonation visited three venerable Jewish delis for chicken noodle soup and pastrami sandwiches.
