Eat Pie at Big Jones. Benefit James Beard Foundation Scholarship Program.
Talk about a win-win. Go to Big Jones now through Labor Day, finish your meal with Black Walnut and Chocolate Bourbon Pie for $8. And $1 of that will go to the James Beard Foundation Silver Anniversary Scholarship Drive, which supports aspiring culinary students. It's a fitting choice given that Beard was such a proponent of traditional American cooking— and the distinctive flavor of black walnut is as unique to America and representative of pre-WWII American cookery as anything grown here.
