Roadtrip bites: Marion’s Pie Shop

30.April 2010

This post has been a long time coming, I realize, but better late than never, right?  As you all know, a few weeks ago, Dan and I went to the Cape for a little getaway.  On the way back, we stopped in Chatham (whoa, that’s a rich town) at a friend’s suggestion (thanks Jess P.!).  She tipped us off about a LOVELY little pie shop that, really, might be worth the drive from Boston all on its own.  Behold: Marion’s Pie Shop.
We picked up a seafood pie for dinner and it was utterly divine.  It had lobster (big, fat, juicy chunks, nothing wimpy here), scallops, shrimp, and cod all bubbling away in a cream sherry sauce and encased in the most tender, flaky, buttery pastry crust I’ve ever put in my grateful mouth.  In case I’m not being clear, it was a sublime act of baking.

To keep it short and sweet, I’ll skip to the moral of this story: If you find yourself within a hundred miles of this place and you don’t stop, you’re missing out.
