What's NEW in Worthington?
Pies & Pints opened at the Shops at Worthington Place last week.
The menu is available on their website Pies & Pints .
Heads up in case of a pizza emergency, the web address is not what you'd think. The Pies & Pints web address (domain) is www.piesandpints.net
Notice the .net if you use .com and you will be looking at Seattle pizza. Writing a post on ColumbusBestBlog.com about a VIP foodie blogger event Worthington Welcomes Pies & Pints, I had it linked the post link to the Seattle site. Duh!
Pies & Pints opened at the Shops at Worthington Place, pies are pizza of course... and pints means beer, but you knew that you are smart.
What kind of pizza is Pies & Pints....
I love pizza but I am NOT a big pizza eater or beer drinker. I ate a lot of pizza. It is very, very filling pizza. Pies & Pints is very cheesy pizza. Personally I admire cheesy in a pizza. Pies & Pints pies are very gourmet pizza. One of the owners, Rob Lindeman stressed that most everything is made onsite. They make the foccacia bread to make the croutons for the salad. They do not make the tortilla chips for the nachos and there was something else they don't make on site but I forget (and lost some of my notes) what the second thing is.*
The Pies & Pints pizza crust is substantial.
I tried the Grape Pie. The menu says it's
"The Grape Pie is Red grapes, gorgonzola & fresh rosemary"
Gourmet huh? I thought there was ginger in the 'Grape Pie' too. I also tried the Chipotle Chicken Pie. The Chipotle Chicken Pie was hot. Spicy hot. That second piece was too much for me. Pies & Pint's pizza is very filling. Substantial.
Other "Pies" on the Pies & Pints menu include:
- Black Bean Pie
- Cuban Pork Pie
- Mediterranean Shrimp Pie
- Spinach Garlic Pie
- Thai Pie
more traditional sounding:
- Mozzarella Caprese Pie
- Pesto Pie
- Classic Pizza Pie
- Pizza Pie
There's a pie with steak on it.
I can't believe I ate the whole thing...
I ate most of two pieces. The pie shaped wedges, Pies & Pints do not cut the pie in squares as some Columbus pizzerias do... and a little salad ...did I stop there? No... I noticed looking at their menu that they had gluten free items. I ate a whole gluten free "pie" too. Pies & Pints is not the best gluten free pizza in town in my humble opinion but I polished it off. I have been craving it since. Not so much the crust as the topping.
I will write a post on ColumbusBestBlog.com about what the best gluten free pizza in Columbus is. Or my favorites anyway, for my gluten free bretheren. I suddenly remembered what Pies & Pints do not make on site, the crust and the bread for the gluten free sandwiches. Duh!
I did NOT try any beer at Pies & Pints but enjoyed Beer Czar Ryan Hastings talk about beers. Pies & Pints has a beer list that is downright entertaining. Beer names include:
- 'Founder Dirty Bastard' from Grand Rapids MI
- 'Thirsty Dog Stud Service Stout' from Akron OH
- 'Fat Heads Sunshine Daydream' from Cleveland OH
There were beers from California and other states outside of the Great Lakes region on the massive beer list at Pies & Pints as well.
I can’t wait to read posts on the real foodies blog’s about their impression of Pies & Pints.
Pies & Pints is at the Shops at Worthington Place on the north-west corner of High Street (Route 23) and Wilson Bridge Road. The location within the mall is the north-east part of the mall, the entrance is on the outside of the mall.
Pies & Pints has two shops in West Virginia and this new one in Worthington. It is not food you are going to say, the pizza is like another pizza in central Ohio. You will have to "GET SOME!" yourself.
