Rodney "The Pie Man" Henry is just about ready for the main event. The new Dangerously Delicious Pies Savory House (3547 Chestnut Ave., Hampden, 410-662-7437) opened quietly less than two weeks ago with a focus on savory pies like steak chili pie and crab-and-cheddar quiche. The lacquered tables are in place, pies of the day (sweet and savory) are noted on the blackboard, and neighbors are poking their heads in to take a look at the sleek, narrow space with scarlet walls that was once occupied by Finnerteas until a storm took off the roof last summer.
But all has been repaired and buffed, and Henry is planning a grand opening Aug.1-3 with live music at 8 p.m. Saturday. The congenial guitarist turned baker marvels at the turn of events: "Rock ’n’ roll doesn’t pay the bills, so I started baking pies. I love it."
