Chocolate Bacon Bourbon Cake is just one reason you should check out a new menu that chef Stephan Pyles created for Fireside Pies

Dallas chef Stephan Pyles has teamed up with Fireside Pies to launch a slew of new menu items at the pizza pie purveyor that include a pecan-smoke gazpacho, slow-braised short ribs and a four-layer, chocolate bourbon cake that may be a good enough reason to check out FP even if you dont like pizzas or salads.

Touted as “Fireside by Pyles,” the new menu items launch Sept. 17 at the Inwood Fireside Pies location, then debut at Fireside Pies Lakewood, Sept. 24, Fireside Pies Plano on Sept. 30, then at Fireside Pies Grapevine and Oct. 1 at Fireside Pies Fort Worth. Pyles will be on hand for the Fort Worth unveiling. Here’s what Pyles has created:
