20 ESSENTIAL BRENTWOOD RESTAURANTS YOU NEED TO TRY

Best pie: Winston Pies

11678 San Vicente Blvd
Before lawyer-turned-pie-maker Brianna Abrams opened her San Vicente shop in 2017, no one ever thought “there’s a dearth of good pies in Brentwood.” Now, though, it’s hard to imagine the neighborhood without Abrams’ flaky-to-the-touch butter crusts, which range from full-size to 2.5-inch bites. Her made-from-scratch fruit pies incorporate organic farmers market produce whenever possible, but you’d be remiss not to try classic pecan (North Carolina-raised Abrams knows something about Southern pies) and chocolate cowgirl, an intensely rich mix of caramel and fudgy Ecuadorian chocolate pressed into a salted oatmeal crust.
