It’s a fair bet that no place as simultaneously demure yet calorific as this exists in all of New York. Co-owners Keavy Blueher and Allison Kave specialize in handsome pies that happen to be relentlessly festive (key lime, blueberry-cranberry), or informed by booze (negroni, bourbon ginger-pecan), or both (grasshopper, eggnog). The s’mores, a Butter & Scotch cornerstone, benefits from a housemade graham-cracker crust and a wispy marshmallow layer that’s spent some quality time near an open flame. On a recent night, two tough-looking guys in hoodies sat at the bar near the yellow-and-red neon “Eat Pie” beacon and devoured slices of negroni pie in rapt silence. They started giggling when asked if they were ready for their next course, something called the Mary Ellen, which consists of a hot-fudge sundae paired with a vodka martini.
