  • MY FAVORITE PIE: The Greenhouse Grille's Bourbon Chocolate Chunk Pecan hits all the right notes.
I’ve talked about a whole lot of different pies with this Pieday feature; I’m sure I’ll find other pies, but this will be the last installment of this particular Eat Arkansas feed. So I’m going to close with the best one I had, anywhere.

That’s the Bourbon Chocolate Chunk Pecan pie from Greenhouse Grille in Fayetteville. I keep dreaming of it. I’m surprised I haven’t accidentally eaten my pillow dreaming about it. It’s that good.

I could go into all the other great things I’ve found at the place — like those amazing Shiitake Mushroom Fries or the Parmesan Risotto Balls or… aw yeah, the Lamb and Herb Meatballs. But I’ve already done that. This time, it’s just about the pie.

You have to start off with the cookie-type crust. It’s like a freaking chocolate chip cookie, I kid you not. And then there are the chocolate chunks themselves… blueberry sized chunks of goodness. The pecan custard is infused with more of that cookie flavor, and that bourbon flavor permeates the whole thing. The top is crisp like a brownie.

And it’s always accompanied by a scoop of vanilla ice cream and some seasonal fruit… and that’s where it really turns into something special. Take a bit of strawberry, a bit of the hot pie and a bit of the cool ice cream and place them all together on your tongue. Now sigh… because it is that good.

The house coffee is the perfect accompaniment, by the way, rich and velvety with lovely nutty notes.

They have the pie whenever Greenhouse Grille is open, whether it’s lunch any day except Monday or dinner any day except Sunday or Monday — that is, unless they run out. And if they run out, I am so sorry. You’re just going to have to make a return trip. You’ll find Greenhouse Grille at 481 S. School in Fayetteville. (479) 474-8909 or check out the website.
