In late June, Pig & Pie started slinging sausages and sweet pie to the masses on 24th Street. Now three months in, chef Nate Overstreet has left he building along with his "ladyfriend," chief pie maker Ashly Amador. Owner Miles Pickering writes with an update on the status quo:
"We are looking for a replacement but his leaving was pretty sudden so we're still in the process. I'll cite irreconcilable differences for the separation, the chemistry was bad. As I'm sure you know, opening a restaurant is a stressful process and it seldom goes exactly as planned. This is a bump in the road and we'll get over it, refocused and better for the experience."
Remember Examiner critic Jesse Hirsch was smitten with the restaurant's whimsical rotating offerings, and Pickering says they're "staying the course," although some changes will undoubtedly occur due to Overstreet's departure. Further updates and a slightly new direction may come when they find a new chef. Until then, send in eyewitness accounts of Pig & Pie over the EaterWire .
