Dangerously Delicious Pies Hope to Open Penn Quarter/Chinatown Location in 4-6 weeks!

901 7th Street, NW – actually located on I St just east of 7th

Back in Feb. 2012 we learned that Dangerously Delicious Pies would be opening in Penn Quarter/Chinatown at 901 7th Street, NW. I originally thought they’d be located on 7th Street side but now I realize the space is actually on I St just east of 7th.

In Feb. a Douglas Development press release anticipated an opening in April 2012. That time frame was a bit ambitious but in the interim Dangerously Delicious Pies was able to open a 2nd location in the food court of Union Station.

Now a permit for a prepared food shop at 901 7th St, NW was recently issued:

The folks from Dangerously Delicious Pies tell me that build out should take about 4-6 weeks so they’re hoping to open around Christmas time! Awesome.

Dangerously Delicious Pies also has a location at 1339 H St, NE.  You can see their menu here.

    Finally. I thought $35 pies would never come to Chinablock.

    Well I for one am happy.

      Yeah I’ll take pie over Fudruckers any day.

    Their pies are good, but the prices give me indigestion.

    The most over-rated over-priced place i have eaten at in D.C. That’s saying something.

      I have found then neither dangerous nor delicious.

    I’ll take a $10.00 sweet potato pie from Henry’s over a tiny slice of DDP for 7 bucks any day of the week…

    • monkeyrotica

      Those are some good pies, Walter. Henry’s wings & mambo sauce kick ass as well.

    Echoing all of the comments in this thread. I seriously don’t get the love for these guys.

      And how are they multiplying? I haven’t heard a single rave review of them either online or in person.

      The only time I’ve ever gotten one was obliterated drunk. Maybe that’s not a bad thing for them.

      • Really good question. It seems that mediocre food + hype = big $$$$ in DC these days. It’s probably a necessary phase in the growth from a city with a few good restaurants to what DC could become – a thriving culinary scene with really good restaurants of varied types in all price points. To get there, however, we have to pass through the “I’m grateful for everything and will pay top dollar for meh food” phase we’re seeing now.

        • Yep – it’s all the fault of DC’s mediocre food scene even though Dangerously Delicious Pies gained their fame (and pricing structure) in Baltimore.

        I’ve never even seen a single person in DD besides the staff. How on Earth do they make any money?

          Well, I for one love Dangerously Delicious. I get full off a piece and a half, so a meal for my girlfriend and I is about 20 bucks. Not a bad deal. And I truly love their pies.

          I must go at a bad time though, because the H street location is always too full and loud when I am there. Makes the atmosphere unpleasant. But this new place will be close enough to my house to just walk home. So problem solved.

          I can’t wait for it to open.

          The pies are so crazy expensive that maybe they only have to sell a few each day to get by.

    Great name and concept but the prices keep me away. I am really glad to see businesses like these succeed, but I can’t justify paying that much for the food. Hopefully there are plenty of people who can support this because I’d like to see them stick around. As for me, even when I lived a block away from the H Street location I would look at the prices and then think of all the other things I could spend that money on.

    I wouldn’t have a problem with DDP, but their crust sucks. What is the point of having a slice when the crust is so tough (due to too much water) and bland (they probably use vegetable shortening not butter and/or cream cheese). It should be flaky and melt in your mouth. It is sad that they have gotten away with lousy crust for so long.

      Pie crusts are deceivingly simple. They are very easy to make, to the point that most people can make one. However, to make a truly blessed crust is a very difficult thing to do. I am super picky about pie crusts, so probably wouldn’t run out the door to try one. I’ve seen their crusts in person so I’ve had my doubts. Will stick with making my own.

        Once you’ve had a real homemade Amish pie crust baked with pure lard, everything else tastes like wax fruit.

          You haven’t had mine, then.

    I don’t understand the problem with the price. A chicken pie slice or a steak pie slice comes with a salad and cost $7.50. Been there and tried it. Been full and satisfied. I can take a full pie home and feed 6 people dinner for $35. I’m sorry but that’s not expensive. I don’t get it
