A public service announcement for fans of Jaynelle St. Jean's excellent (and much-lauded) pies: If you're thinking about picking up a slice from the PieTisserie pie window located inside of the Mexican restaurant Nido (444 Oak St., Oakland), you can save yourself the trip. Sadly, as of a couple of weeks ago, the pie shop has closed.
The good news is that St. Jean plans to keep her business alive. She told What the Fork that she’s launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a new brick-and-mortar shop. In the meantime, St. Jean will resume taking pie orders sometime next week.
