No one really cares about pi, aka π, the irrational number that looks like 3.141592653589793238...and so on. But what New Yorkers do care about is cheap eats, and it's always a good day when restaurants will give us discounted meals, no matter the reason. Since March 14 has turned into somewhat of a national holiday to celebrate every type of pie—cerebral and corporal—we found the best deals in the city for pizza pies and pie pies:
Four & Twenty Blackbirds: Order three slices of pie for just $14 at the original Gowanus location, the Park Slope Public Library cafe and the Prospect Heights pie counter.
Whole Foods: Order large bakery pies for $3.14 off, while supplies last.
Dig Inn: Every NYC Dig Inn location is serving three different pies slices for just $3.14 each. While the flavors will vary per location, you can expect either apple, strawberry, blueberry or sweet potato, all made with ingredients from local farms.
Spyglass Rooftop Bar at Archer Hotel: The bar is launching a Pizza Pi Delivery Service special, and visitors can order two pies for $31.40 total. The 12-inch pies include a classic Margherita (usually $18) and a Charlie Palmer Steak Pizza (usually $22).
The Lodge at Gallow Green: Go the top of the McKittrick Hotel for three gourmet pizza pies for $14 each (usually priced between $19-21). Flavors include the signature tarte flambée (bacon, onions, gruyere), prosciutto-arugula, cheese, pepperoni and Margherita.
