It's Pi Day: Order a sweet slice from this Aventura bakery
Make your Pi Day infinitely sweeter by celebrating with a slice of gooey goodness.
Context: Pi Day is held every March 14 because the date (3/14) matches the first three numbers of the mathematical constant Pi (3.14).
State of plate: To mark the occasion, I ordered a slice of pecan pie from Les Moulins La Fayette, a French bakery in Aventura.
- Correction: this was a $7 slice of heaven. The rich, gooey filling makes you take the time to savor every bite.
- The creamy texture contrasts nicely with the pecan pieces and the perfectly crispy biscuit-like crust. (No soggy bottoms here!)
- In Miami style, the classic Southern dessert was topped with a dollop of dulce de leche and a halved marshmallow.
My take: I always underestimated the humble pecan pie, but no more. This is an American staple for a reason — and Les Moulins takes it to new heights.
