Best Thing We Ate Last Night: Lemon Meringue Pie at North End Grill

When a dish is surrounded by quite a bit of hype, it can be a bit of a letdown when you actually try it. Thankfully we can report that 30 Under 30 honoree Alexandra Ray's lemon meringue pie at North End Grill doesn't disappoint. Given that the proportions can be tough to nail, it's not commonly found (or in our case, eaten), but despite the visual, the concentrated tang of the lemon filling balances well with the tall, airy meringue, and the addition of candied almonds provides a pleasant crunch. This is one classic dessert we wouldn't mind seeing a comeback of - macarons watch out ($8; 646-747-1600).
