ATLANTA: Lemon icebox pie
The South gets hot. Refreshment is essential. One of the great warm-weather tongue-icers, popular at barbecues and in plate-lunch places throughout the region, is lemon icebox pie. There is none better than the one served on the boomerang-pattern Formica tables of a funky 1950s diner in Atlanta called the Silver Skillet. And we do mean the one, because most days only a single pie is made, and after it's sliced and served (often before noon), you're outta luck. Cool, creamy, and neatly poised between sugar-sweet and lemon-zesty, this pie is a superlative exclamation point after a meal of country ham, biscuits, and red-eye gravy. Even if the icebox pie is gone, the Silver Skillet is a charismatic blast from the past, with glass windows that tilt outward like mid-century tailfins and green-and-orange Naugahyde booths.
