Pies 'n' Thighs

New York

Pies ‘n’ Thighs is Williamsburg’s premier outpost for fried chicken, with Southern comfort favorites that will easily make you forget you’re sitting in a shabby space under the Williamsburg Bridge. Enjoy expertly fried birds and dough (the old-fashioned doughnuts are big in both size and flavor), and flaky, house-baked biscuits. There are chicken buckets reserved for take-out, but no matter if you stay or go, complete the experience with a side trio of smoked pork collards, burnt end baked beans, and mac & cheese. The batter is buttermilk, the hot sauce is Frank’s, the butter is honeyed, and the pies -- including banana cream, bourbon pecan, and apple -- are traditional.
