If you have spent anytime on my blog, you will know I love pizza and am always in search of a good slice. Recently I found myself heading to Paris to check out The Pie – Brick Oven Pizza.
This restaurant is small and quaint and located right on Main Street so it’s perfect for lunch or dinner while exploring all of the cute shops along the same street. The restaurant offers dine in and carry out options.
Upon entering I was immediately greeted by a friendly and courteous staff member making orders at the pizza oven located in the front of the store. You can have a seat at any of the tables or the bar located just on the other side of the entrance area. I found the large map on the wall intriguing. You can add a push pin to indicate where you are visiting from and they already have quite a collection of visitors from all over the world.
The options were plentiful and I had a hard time choosing which pizza to try and settled for my main stay, introductory sausage pizza and garlic knots. Here’s the fun part, I departed from my table and went back to the front to watch my order being prepared.
This was also actually a great way to see other options being prepared such as the Honey Pot pizza and a calzone just to name a few.
The entire place smells heavenly since the pizza oven is located out front and not back in their main kitchen prep and cooking area. If you have kids, this also provides entertainment for them.
By far, one of the best pizzas I’ve had in the Lexington area and the garlic knots are to die for – quite honestly I think I could make a meal of just those. While I was on more of a fact finding mission the day I was wandering around Paris, I didn’t expect to happen upon this place, but so glad I did. Pulled up my “Best of the Bluegrass” rating guide for pizza places and decided to go ahead and rate this place. Happy to say on a scale of 100 points awarded in 15 rated areas, The Pie scored a 96 earning a spot on our Best of the Bluegrass | Pizza Places list.
