500BestSquareLemon Ice Box Pie @ Clancy’s

All of Clancy’s desserts are understated and simple. No flaming, no spun sugar, hardly even any layers. This nice little tart is the restaurant’s most talked-about ending course. Simple, but perfect: a lovely little pie with a rich custard and the ideal lemon component to balance off the sugar. Very good with a glass of Sauternes or Auslese.

    I had the pie last year. It was frozen whereas as the name states, it’s supposed to be refrigerated. My lemon icebox pie is a lot better! But I will say that we had good pie at the restaurant company that took over Bozo’s. It could have been a little more lemony!
