Bloor Street restaurant shakes up the miniature meat pie game, with science

Pie Squared is a new fast-food restaurant located just west of Cabbagetown, on a somewhat lonely stretch of Bloor Street East. It’s the latest Toronto business to specialize exclusively in savoury pies, and it’s bringing two new things to the meat-and-pastry game: a whole new shape (square!) and a dorky gimmick. The shop’s tagline is “The science of the perfect pie,” and it’s the unwavering commitment to that theme that impresses: the servers wear white lab coats, the menu is laid out like the periodic table, and each crusty pocket has a fictional elemental symbol branded onto its surface (“Tc” for tandoori chicken and vegetable, “Sc” for steak and cheese). Combo “reactions” are priced between $7 to $8.50, which is pretty cheap for a filling lunch, but possibly not worth the embarrassment of ordering an “Eπ²” out loud.
