Seattle
Located in the heart of the famous Pike Place Fish Market, this family-owned bakery has been serving sweet and savory pastries since 1992, making Gourmet’s list of 10 must-try Seattle eateries last year. Piroshky are small stuffed pies, the Russian version of the empanada or calzone, rolled out and molded on sight for customers to watch. Fillings range from the traditional potatoes and mushroom or marzipan to cream cheese, apples and rhubarb. The bakery’s prime location means some doughy puffs feature a Pacific Northwest twist, like piroshky stuffed with smoked salmon paté.
