Best time travel pie: BUTTERSCOTCH PIE at GOODY GOODY

Best time travel pie

Except for key lime, pie has faded from most menus. But with Richard Gonzmart’s resurrection of Tampa icon Goody Goody, pie is at the center of the conversation. There’s coconut, chocolate and banana creams, plus classic apple. But the star of the show is the ultra-rich butterscotch with a torched meringue and flaky crust. It’s like being given permission to eat a whole jar of dulce de leche with meringue. Some may find it too rich, but I say, “Bring it on!” —Jon Palmer Claridge
