Paulie Gee Sake Pie Winner Plus Another Pie To Name!

Paulie Gee isn’t a man who settles. I knew that even after 35 comments of clever names for a new pie on his menu, if it wasn’t absolutely perfect, he wouldn’t chose one. There were some real winners, like:

The Akira Kurosake, Land of the Rising Dough, Greenpointzilla!, For Heaven’s Saké, etc

But he is a man who keeps his word, so don’t worry – someone is getting a damn pie!

Paulie Gee’s response:

“We are going to go with a name suggested by our busser Jake.  It will be called Sake Mountain Way, a take off on the Joe Walsh song Rocky Mountain Way.  Jake was inspired by whomever suggested Sake Balboa, so whomever suggested that is the winner.”

Congratulations Julie! (Email me to claim your winning pie – greenpointers at

And thanks for everyone who commented!

Here is another pie Paulie needs help naming, which  he says “was inspired by my favorite calzone. Fresh mootz, sliced Canadian bacon, sweet Italian fennel sausage, a touch of fresh basil and post-oven ricotta dollops.”

That looks good!

Hints: Paulie is big into music and said it could start with “Ricotta Be…”

About Jen G

After living in NYC my entire life, I found the strongest sense of community in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Running this blog is truly an honor and the best part is meeting its readers in real life. Everyday I am energized by smiles and inspiring conversations with fellow Greenpointers who tirelessly do and create incredible things that are good for our community and share the same love I have for life here. If you see me walking with my little dog "D" - please say hi!
