Boston is a smart city, so it makes sense that it embraces Pi Day. This year’s celebration of the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter is extra special, since the date equals a rounded-off version of the value: 3.1416. Honor this mathematical marvel with both sweet and savory pie deals, plus a chance to show off your pi knowledge.
At all Flour Bakery + Cafe locations (Fort Point, South End, Central Square, and Back Bay), a piece of pie is just $3.14 today ( a slice normally runs $5). Stop by for some chocolate cream, coconut cream, banana cream, or lemon meringue.
If you’re more into savory pies, swing by any Salvatore’s location (the Seaport, Theater District, Medford Square, Andover, and Lawrence) for a $3.14 flatbread at the bar, from classic margherita to sweet chili chicken.
Or if you want to make your own pie, check out this recipe from the owner of Petsi Pies.
