Royal Pies at Pleasant House Bakery
Bridgeport

Individual pies filled with earthy kale and mushrooms. On Fridays, fried fish alongside crisp nubs of fries, Meyer-lemon tartar sauce to spare. These dishes, re-creations of homey British food from Art Jackson (formerly the chef of Bijan’s Bistro) and his wife, Chelsea Kalberloh Jackson, are the bread-and-butter of this small Bridgeport shop. But the taste you may remember most may be a stray piece of arugula. Because like so much of the produce here, it was grown by the owners at their small urban plots called Pleasant Farms.
